Description

I thought this was an interesting target. Two galaxies that are colliding, NGC 4567 and NGC 4568. It is fascinating to me that the color of the galaxies are different. Maybe due to age or star formation rates?

And luckily I caught a supernova! (Thanks to Ben in the comments for letting me know)
