Antennae galaxies (NGC 4038 & 4039)

The two spiral galaxies started to interact a few hundred million years ago, making the Antennae galaxies one of the nearest and youngest examples of a pair of colliding galaxies. Nearly half of the faint objects in the Antennae image are young clusters containing tens of thousands of stars.

The sharpest view ever taken of this region (roiling dust and gas where thousands of stars are forming), called the Orion Nebula. More than 3,000 stars of various sizes appear in this image.
