A Lovely pair of blue tear-drop merging galaxies.

Just imaging being closer, or even in one of the galaxies.......

If only hyperspace travel was not s-f

If you're using IE, this might help:

And some other dude offered another idea I haven't tried yet, mostly because I can't find it right now (sigh).

Is the blue here a superposition or does it belong to the galaxy in the zoomed out image, you think?

Edit: There also seems to be another, smaller galaxy object behind the blue... complicated!

Those blues are such a pretty shade of blue, and their shapes are SO eccentric!

Love the blue images, how about this assymetric offering?

Huge spiral you say!!! WOW, I've centered it, check that out:



And you can zoom in again and again!

The galaxy is Messier 101, one of the largest nearby spiral galaxies. You should check Hubble's image of the galaxy, it is absolutely stunning.

This is a beautiful blue but I have no idea what it is.  I hope it's not an optical aberration - although it probably is.  I inverted the image, which made it a golden color, but it didn't do much except hurt my eyes.  Anyone have any ideas?
