NASA’s Hubble Space  galactic ‘dancing duo’

Telescope captures a

NASA Hubble Space Telescope

discovered the duo between 50 and 60 million light-years away from us, towards the constellation Leo.

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope

 has discovered a large spiral galaxy called NGC 3227 wrapped in a turbulent “gravitational dance,” with NGC 3226, an elliptical galaxy.

Collectively called

 Arp 94, the two are between 50 and 60 million light-years from Earth, towards the constellation Leo.

Faint tidal

streams of gas and dust link the pair in their dance.

NGC 3227 is a Seyfert Galaxy,

a type of galaxy that has a supermassive black hole at the centre and therefore accrete metal, releasing large amounts of radiation.

Hubble was looking at

 NGF 3227 and 3226 as part of a program to measure black hole masses by observing the dynamics of gas at the centres of bright galaxy cluster
