Eyes in the sky

Description: 
  • This real image, taken by a satellite, presents a curious phenomenon: the almost union of the galaxies NGC 2207 and IC 2163. They have been next to each other for almost 40 million years. This proximity formed the aspect of a mask, where the core of each galaxy forms sort of blue "eyes", along with spiral arms completing the image. These galaxies are located in the constellation Canis Major
