Hubble Telescope Snaps Trippy New View of Two Swirling Galaxies

A peculiar pair of galaxies swirls together in a mesmerizing new photo from the Hubble Space Telescope

Located some 800 million light-years from Earth, the two spiral galaxies, known as IC 4271 or Arp 40, appear superimposed, with the smaller galaxy in front of its larger companion

The larger galaxy is classified as a Seyfert galaxy, a type of galaxy with an active core, according to a statement from NASA(opens in new tab),

An active galaxy is one that has a supermassive black hole at its center. This monster black hole  pulls in surrounding gas and dust

The larger of the two galaxies in IC 4271 is believed to be a Type II Seyfert galaxy, meaning it is a very bright source of infrared and visible light
