Description

Is this a rehearsal of  what will be the scene of the marriage of our milky way with its neighbor andromeda?

The presence of two bright spots at the center of the galaxy is another clue to the galaxy's checkered past. NGC 7727's core is still made up of the original two galactic cores, each of which houses a supermassive black hole.
