Dawn of a galactic collision

https://www.nasa.gov/news/releases/latest/index.html

A riot of colour and light dances through this peculiarly shaped galaxy, NGC 5256. Its smoke-like plumes are flung out in all directions and the bright core illuminates the chaotic regions of gas and dust swirling through the galaxy’s centre. Its odd structure is due to the fact that this is not one galaxy, but two—in the process of a galactic collision.
