NGC 3808A & NGC 3808B

NGC 3808A & NGC 3808B

Arp 87 is a pair of colliding
galaxies, NGC 3808A and NGC 3808B. Located about 330 million light years away in the constellation Leo, they are a spiral galaxy and elliptical galaxy that are strongly interacting to the point of distortion. What a light show for the locals!
Using both ESA/ESO/NASA
provided software and Photoshop I processed four b&w Hubble Space Telescope images (courtesy NASA and MAST) captured with wide-band filters at 450nm, 555nm, 814nm and one with a
narrow-band 656nm filter.
