Beauty is Symmetry and a Graceful Line
I've posted this photo before because it is a strikingly beautiful galaxy (NGC 3718) more than 52 million light years away. Gravity from another galaxy (perhaps the one to the right) has warped what probably was a large spiral galaxy (Sc?) but it has achieved a sort of line and movement artists here on Earth wish they could draw.
There are 5 galaxies interacting in the background above this one. They don't look as beautiful to me.
