On media materials, you can see the moment of the collision of two galaxies UGC 12914 and UGC 12915 – both of them received the nickname “toffee galaxies”, as they look like the famous lollipop on a stick with a spiral pattern. Scientists say the collision itself began about 25 million years ago and is now culminating.

As a result, both galaxies in the photo formed a figure resembling a “cosmic butterfly”. This is a very impressive sight.
