ARP273 - The Galactic Rose
I went back and revisited my favorite galactic duo, the ARP273 interacting galaxy pair. This loving couple resides 300 million light years away toward the Andromeda constellation.
They are tiny little things through the telescope (1.7 x 0.6 arc-minutes), so its very hard to present this beautiful view with clarity. Looks like a 🌹, right? I hope you enjoy it!
