I’ve been looking at this awesome photo all week:

That’s the Tadpole Galaxy, a spiral galaxy that got one of its arms ripped off by another galaxy that passed a little too close by. Pretty mind-blowing, isn’t it?

But what got me staring at this photo for a whole week was when I realized that practically all the bright lights in the background were also galaxies. Galaxies!

Head asplode!
