About this video
Duration: 55 seconds

This video pans across Hubble Space Telescope observations of NGC 3314A and NGC 3314B, a pair of galaxies in the constellation Hydra. While they might look like they are in the midst of a cosmic collision, they are in fact separated by tens of millions of light-years of space.
