One of the most powerful cameras in the world has just photographed two distant galaxies intertwined in what is called a “galactic ballet”.

Part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) National Optical Infrared Astronomy Research Laboratory (NOIRLab), at A chamber of dark energy on the 4-meter telescope Víctor M. Blanco at the Inter-American Observatory Serra Talola in Chile taught his lenses on the constellation Horologium about 60 million light years from Earth. Here it is captured the image galaxies NGC 1512 and NGC 1510, which are trapped by each other’s gravitational pull.
