Stunning Hubble Space Telescope image shows ‘galactic wings’ from ongoing collision

A beautiful new image from the Hubble Space Telescope captures a pair of “fluttering wings” produced by an ongoing collision between two distant galaxies.

The galactic wings are part of the VV689 system, nicknamed the Angel Wing, which can be found in the night sky in the constellation Leo, according to a statement by the European Space Agency (ESA). The distinct wings-like look is a product of a cataclysmic encounter between two galaxies that have been in the process of merging for billions of years.
