Hoag's Object in the constellation Serpens. A ring galaxy in which there is a central core of older yellow stars with a ring of young blue stars. The formation of a galaxy like this probably involves a galactic collision, but it's still a mystery. If you look closely at the gap, you can see another ring galaxy in the distance.(Credit: R.
