A family sits on the couch watching Charlie Brown help his friend Linus wait for the Great Pumpkin. Halloween, They’ll be surprised to hear that NASA has already found a “bigger pumpkin”.
NASA image Hubble Space Telescope Show me what a giant jack or lantern looks like in the sky. The “pumpkin” is actually a picture of the early stages of the collision between two galaxies.
The pumpkin’s face is made up of a curved blue smile made up of two old red stars and a newborn star cluster that forms the eye and gives the area an orange glow. Blue stars scatter the foreground, making the Halloween pumpkin look shimmering.
Relationship : This space pumpkin from the 2019 NASA JPL Carving Competition is just EPIC!
This “bigger pumpkin” is, of course, much larger than a Charlie Brown pumpkin. The entire landscape spans nearly 109,000 light-years. Milky Way The galaxy according to NASA.
The region now looks like a Halloween pumpkin to our eyes, but it will soon lose its shape as a pair of colliding galaxies become more tangled. NASA predicted that 120 million light-years away from the constellation Canis Major, the pair would be a giant spiral galaxy. Researchers say the “smile” may be the start of the IUD reconstruction Description of the NASA image. The smile arm covers both galaxies and was likely formed when the interstellar gas was compressed as the galaxies began to merge.
In most cases two Galaxies collideNASA said they are losing their typical flat disk shape and the stars of each galaxy are moving to the new soccer-like space. Finally, they form an elliptical galaxy.
It would be a rare achievement if Big Pumpkin became a giant spiral galaxy. There are many other examples in the universe. Robin GalaxyAstronomers said in a NASA statement.
The mystery and conspiracy that surrounds a kind of galaxy by these two colliding galaxies that deserve their reputation as “The Great Pumpkin” In “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”, poor Linus never saw the mysterious great pumpkin he wanted to see.
