The US space agency NASA has recently captured beautiful snaps of unusual Galaxy IRAS 06076-2139. NASA’s Hubble Telescope has captured these images which are found in the constellation Lepus (The Hare).

As per the NASA officials, Hubble Telescope has captured these rare images from 500 million light years distance. It has used Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) and Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) to scan these images.

NASA said that this specific object stood out from the crowd. This is actually formed by two distinct galaxies which are rushing at a speed of 2 million kilometers (1,243,000 miles) per hour. However, their individual speed is too fast to merge and combine into a single galaxy.

As per the reports, due to the small separation of about 20,000 light-years, the galaxies are expected to distort through the gravity force. So when they will cross each other, it will change their shapes on the grand scale.

NASA said that such galactic connections were very common for Hubble telescope. Such events have been the area of study for many astronomers around the world.

Such fascinating behaviors of galaxies may result in many other situations like galactic cannibalism, galaxy harassment, and even galaxy crashes.  NASA has reported that the Milky Way itself fell into such category. It will merge with the Andromeda Galaxy in about 4.5 billion years. NASA further added that the fate of these galaxies was not alarming as the distances between stars were long enough. The study suggests that due this large distance gap any stellar collision will hardly occur.

Our space is very large and contains billions of unknown galaxies. These are the fascinating things in our universe. Scientists are continuously working to solve these hidden mysteries into space. Still, they have a long way to go to solve these mysteries.
