Hubble Detects Dynamic Galactic Duo

While many galaxies lead their own separate, solitary lives, others stray a little too close to a near neighbor and take their friendship even deeper. The galaxies NGC 6285 and NGC 6286, have done just that! Together, the duo is named Arp 293 and they are interacting, their mutual gravitational attraction distorting their shapes.
