Hungry Giant! This galaxy has a rather eventful story to tell. Astronomers think that it is in the process of swallowing up two much smaller dwarf galaxies that strayed too close to it. It is likely that the encounter was the trigger for the starburst inside, bringing in fresh supplies of gas that are now fueling the burst of star formation. Typically, this kind of galaxy would present a rather smooth appearance on the sky and would consist mostly of old, reddish stars. A bit dull…

NGC 520 - the product of a collision between two disc galaxies...

Whirlpool galaxy, also M51, with its companion dwarf galaxy NGC 5194. These two are interacting galaxies in the constellation Canes Venatici.

On August 31, 2012 the Sun threw a major tantrum. It started with a vast arc of material towering over its surface, a stream of plasma flowing between two sunspots. Sometimes these collapse back down to the Sun’s surface, but this one exploded, blasting hundreds of millions of tons of material out into space. SDO captured this ridiculously awesome picture of the arc just before it erupted!
