A cataclysmic cosmic collision takes center stage in this image taken with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

The image features the interacting galaxy pair IC 1623, which lies around 275 million light-years away in the constellation Cetus (the Whale).

The two galaxies are in the final stages of merging, and astronomers expect a powerful inflow of gas to ignite a frenzied burst of star formation in the resulting compact starburst galaxy.

This sequence starts with a broad view of the rather faint constellation of Cetus (The Sea Monster).
