NGC 1409

Two interacting galaxies, one a spiral with a tendril of dust seemingly being pulled out and wrapping around the other, an older, yellower, smoother galaxy.

 

h/t to William Keel, who was also the PI, for this rare color STIS picture.

Data from the following proposal were used to create this image:

Subarcsecond Structure in Nearby AGNs

 

Note color is approximate for the outer left and right part of the image. The filters only overlapped the broad central area.

 

Red: STIS/CCD F28X50LPMIRVIS

Green: pseudo

Blue: STIS/CCD 50CCD MIRVIS

 

North is 4.66° counter-clockwise from up.
