NASA has published a new article on its website describing a dangerous dance between two galaxies that are slowly colliding.

According to the NASA record, galaxies are located 100 million light-years away from Earth, and according to NASA, both galaxies are spiral galaxies. The galaxy at the bottom of the image is marked NGC 5953, and the one above is called NGC 5954. Since the two galaxies interact so much that they have been given a collective name – Arp 91.

In addition, NASA states that NGC 5953 is clearly “jerk“by NGC 5954, which is a result of the enormous gravitational attraction between the two galaxies. Astronomers speculate that in a long enough timeline, the galaxies will eventually collide with each other to form a new type of galaxy called an elliptical galaxy.
