Arp 227 - interacting galaxies in Pisces
2

Good Morning!
November rain, November fog and today icy rain but I'm trying to use any minute I get.

About 100 million lightyears away we do have an massive distorted galaxy - NGC 474, maybe a collision in the past, maybe the result of absorbing a smaller galaxy, science does not know so far what caused that huge spherical ring:

Arp 227 in Pisces
