A "Rose" Made of Galaxies: Arp 273

About This Image

This image, taken in celebration of Hubble's 21st birthday, shows the interacting galaxy pair called Arp 273. The disk of the larger galaxy is distorted into a rose-like shape by the gravitational pull of the companion galaxy below it. A swath of blue, jewel-like points across the top is the combined light from clusters of bright and hot young stars.
