Hubble’s face-on view of this unusual galaxy, known as Hoag’s Object after Arthur Allen Hoag, who discovered it in 1950, shows its nearly perfect ring of hot, massive, blue stars surrounding a nucleus of older, yellow stars. Ring-shaped galaxies can form either through a collision with another galaxy or when a second galaxy speeds through the first, leaving parts of itself behind.

Stunning image showing the fusion of three galaxies by astronomers called "The Bird", this triple galaxy (composed of two massive spiral galaxies and a third irregular galaxy) lies 650 million light years in Sagittarius. The resulting mega galaxy is called Tinker Bell Triplet.
