Notes:

This image of a pair of interacting galaxies called Arp 273 was released to celebrate the 21st anniversary of the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

After 21 years, the Hubble Space Telescope continues to wow the world with mind-bending views of the universe. In celebration of its anniversary, the wonder continues with this gift of a galactic rose formed by a group of interacting galaxies roughly 300 million light years away from Earth.       —  NBC

We are visiting our daughter, relative, and friends this week and part of next week. I may not get chance to visit you.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to my blog friends!
