A trick of perspective -- chance alignment mimics a cosmic collision

, : A trick of perspective -- chance alignment mimics a cosmic collision.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has produced a highly detailed image of a pair of overlapping galaxies called NGC 3314. While the two galaxies look as if they are in the midst of a collision, this is in fact a trick of perspective: the two just happen to appear in the same direction from our vantage point.
