Beautiful Space Photos

#8 NGC 3314

In this outstanding photo, two separate galaxies look to be crossing exactly in line with each other. Scientists actually say that these photos of the two galaxies that look to be crossing are tens of millions of light-years away from each other, and that they just happen to be in the perfect spot for the telescope to take a picture like this! These galaxies are over 140 million light-years away from Earth, so seeing it is a very rare sight for scientists.
