Located about 130 million light-years away, NGC 4650A is one of only 100 known polar-ring galaxies.

NGC 474 is an elliptical galaxy in the constellation Pisces. This large galaxy is known to possess tidal tails, although their origins remain unknown. These tidal tails may be related to debris left over from absorbing numerous small galaxies in the past billion years. Or the shells may be like ripples in a pond, where the ongoing collision with the spiral galaxy just above NGC 474 is causing density waves to ripple though it.

Just think... without the chaos principle, the universe would never have known the likes of this.

Spiral Galaxy M82, Scientists have traced unusually regular radio signals being emitted from unknown object in this Galaxy.

The Whirlpool galaxy, M51, has been one of the most photogenic galaxies in amateur and professional astronomy. Easily photographed and viewed by smaller telescopes, this celestial beauty is studied extensively in a range of wavelengths by large ground- and space-based observatories.
