Arp 273 (UGC 1810/13)

 

ugc1810_lrgb_2a-crop166UGC galaxies are often tiny and not exactly spectacular. This one is different: The pair of UGC 1810/13, also known as Arp 273, is a masterpiece of art: Prominent spiral arms reveal plenty of detail which can also be distinguished by its colour. Make sure to view the highest resolution.
