ESO 350-38

Found a kind of heart shaped galaxy interaction. It's a bit small on the detector, but there is a lot of star formation going on. If we could see it in more detail there would be a lot of puffy, glowing ionized clouds across a substantial fraction of the galaxy.

 

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

Clusters, Clumps, Dust and Gas in Extreme Star-Forming Galaxies

Lyman alpha morphology of local starburst galaxies

 

Red screen: WFC3/UVIS F665N

Blue screen: WFC3/UVIS F275W

Red: WFC3/IR F160W+WFC3/UVIS F814W

Green: WFC3/UVIS F555W

Blue: ACS/WFC F435W

 

North is 123.53° clockwise from up.
