NGC 7727


Bernard Miller
 

Hi,

 

This is an image of NGC 7727, also known as Arp 222. It is an irregular galaxy about 76 million light years away in the constellation Aquarius. It is most likely the product of the merger of two spiral galaxies about a billion years ago. It will most likely become an elliptical galaxy in the distant future. You can also see NGC 7724 in the upper right of the image.

 

Comments and suggestions welcomed.
