Large Magellanic Cloud - by Deep Space Photography - This vibrant infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way galaxy. Located160,000 light-years from Earth, it is one of a handful of dwarf galaxies that orbit the Milky Way.
Arp 227 consists of two galaxies in the constellation Pisces: the large (250,000 light-years across) lenticular galaxy NGC 474 (also known as UGC 864) located about 93 million light-years away, and the spiral galaxy NGC 470 at about 95 million light-years away. They lie at a separation of about 160,000 light-years. - Credit: NASA
