The European Southern Observatory took a picture of the galaxy NGC 7727, which was formed as a result of the merger.

Galaxy NGC 7727 lies approximately 89 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Aquarius. Two star-shaped objects can be seen at the center of NGC 7727, one of which is likely the former core of one of the two spiral galaxies that made NGC 7727.

The object was formed as a result of the collision of two galaxies. This event led to the merger of interacting structures and the formation of a larger galaxy. Stellar trails and streams are the remnants of the disks of two galaxies that collided to form this object.

The fact that the galaxy was born as a result of a collision of the other two is indicated by the irregular shape of the imprinted structure and the stellar streams visible in its peripheral regions.

According to scientists, NGC 7727 in the future will turn into an elliptical galaxy with very little interstellar dust and low star formation.

Also, earlier on the website of the Hubble Space Telescope, a photograph was published showing the merging of two galaxies.
