    This video begins with an image of the whole night sky, before zooming in to the constellation of Hydra and the curious pair of galaxies catalogued as NGC 3314. These two galaxies are actually separated by around 20 million light years, even if from our vantage point they look like they are in the midst of a collision. The video ends with detailed Hubble observations of the two galaxies. Credit: NASA, ESA, Digitized Sky Survey 2, N. Risinger (skysurvey.org).

      This video pans across Hubble observations of NGC 3314A and NGC 3314B, a pair of galaxies in the constellation Hydra. While they might look like they are in the midst of a cosmic collision, they are in fact separated by around 20 million light-years of space. The overlap is simply a trick of perspective.
