Two tiny dwarf galaxies have wandered from a vast cosmic wilderness into a nearby "big city" packed with galaxies. After being in a quiet inactive period for billions of years, they are ready to party by starting a firestorm of star birth. Hubble Space Telescope has captured the glow of new stars in these small, ancient galaxies, called Pisces A and Pisces B. Credits: NASA, ESA, and E.

2.3 billion light years from Earth is a massive cluster of merging galaxies! What are those long arcs in the image? Light being bent by gravitational lensing!
NGC 4725 is an intermediate barred spiral galaxy about 40 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices. NGC 4725 is a Seyfert Galaxy, suggesting an active galactic nucleus containing a supermassive black hole.
