    Wow that's stunning. A quick search in NED and it's a known interacting pair. They both have redshifts measured (which are similar).

    The pair has the lovely name: MCG -01-03-008

    What a perfect set of twin galaxies though. Another example of how vast the universe is. 😃

    These two merging spiral galaxies appear to be spinning in opposite directions.
