Image: Hubble sees starbursts in the wake of a fleeting romance

(Phys.org) —This image from NASA/ESA’s Hubble Space Telescope shows galaxy NGC 4485 in the constellation of Canes Venatici (The Hunting Dogs). The galaxy is irregular in shape, but it hasn’t always been so. Part of NGC 4485 has been dragged towards a second galaxy, named NGC 4490—which lies out of frame to the bottom right of this image.
