An Interacting Colossus


  This picture, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2), shows a galaxy known as NGC 6872 in the constellation of Pavo (The Peacock).
  
  Its unusual shape is caused by its interactions with the smaller galaxy that can be seen just above NGC 6872, called IC 4970. They both lie roughly 300 million light-years away from Earth.
  
  From tip to tip, NGC 6872 measures over 500 000 light-years across, making it the second largest spiral galaxy discovered to date. In terms of size it is beaten only by NGC 262, a galaxy that measures a mind-boggling 1.3 million light-years in diameter!
  
  To put that into perspective, our own galaxy, the Milky Way, measures between 100 000 and 120 000 light-years across, making NGC 6872 about five times its size.

Laurel’s Selfie.  by Aaron Tsuru - a submit to our Nudie Selfie watercolor portrait series:

In light of the scandals surrounding the celebrity nude photo hacks and the shaming of Lawrence, Upton, & others for having naked photos of themselves in this world, this series that started with Marla is just our way of saying there is nothing wrong with taking naked photos of yourself and sharing them consensually. 
Get naked. Have fun. We only get one go at this life, might as well enjoy it while you can!

If you’d like to be part of the series, send us a note or drop me an email at tsurufoto@gmail.com
