About this image

Arp 147 is a pair of galaxies. The blue ring probably formed after the galaxy on the left passed through the galaxy on the right. The left-most galaxy is relatively undisturbed apart from a smooth ring of starlight. The right-most galaxy exhibits a clumpy, blue ring of intense star formation.
