The telescope Hubble captured a shining stars penguin. Approximately at distance

of 326 million light years from our planet in constellation of the Hydra a space telescope Hubble photographed two galaxies in the course of merge, which are similar to huge and shining stars penguin. Two are guilty of creation of such unusual galactic form galaxy: usual spiral galaxy of NGC 2936, and also galaxy of the smaller NGC 2937 sizes. Object, which turns out as a result of merge of these two galaxies received Arp 142 designation. When two different galaxies face and merge, often they create form absolutely unrecognizable or reminding any object. Big gas-and-dust clouds of both galaxies which merge also are attracted to each other that give a powerful spur for active formation of new stars. Orbital telescope Hubble could photograph one of such galactic collisions – told Joe Liske, the astronomer from the European Space Agency (ESA). He made comments on video showing space object of Arp 142, created from two merging galaxies NGC 2936 and NGC 2937. A bit more to the right over the head of a shining stars penguin there is one more galaxy. According to scientists, it is too far to have opportunity to interact with objects of NGC 2936 and NGC 2937.
