Description

Hello all. This is an interesting pair of galaxies in Virgo. NGC 5775 is an edge-on Spiral Galaxy that lies 60 million light years away. NGC 5774 is the Face-on Spiral Galaxy. It's 79 million light years away. They seem to be merging to me.

I am happy that I captured some other Galaxies in the same field!

Captured at the dark site. Transparency was 6/10.
