Using the MeerKAT telescope, an international team of astronomers has identified wide-spread tidal debris in a nearby galaxy group known as NGC 7232.

The newly found structure is composed of cold neutral atomic hydrogen and extends over 450,000 light years.

Tidal debris detected in a nearby galaxy group Tidal-debris-detected

Studies show that signatures of interaction between galaxies are seen in the form of, for instance, the length and shape of tidal tails, bridges and other debris.

When two galaxies orbit each other, tidal forces distort each galaxy, and these distorted regions are then ejected into intergalactic space, forming tidal tails.

Death by Spaghettification

Using telescopes from ESO and other organisations around the world, astronomers have spotted a rare blast of light from a star being ripped apart by a supermassive black hole.
