Very strange pattern of star formation here!

Ooh, that’s nice! Perhaps triggered by those two bigger galaxies interacting?

Possibly. I’ve not seen anything quite like it before - there are many distinct and isolated clumps of star formation in this region. Perhaps Hubble could take a look and see what is going on?? :slight_smile:

I like this! My guess is the little galaxy to the lower right got its outer bits torn apart by the two bigger ones in some kind of three way interaction.
