This is Where the Pearl is….

NGC 5331

In the Constellation Virgo is this pair of Interacting Galaxies, known a NGC 5331. Light from there takes 450 million years to reach us. This picture was released by Hubble Space Telescope on April 2008. The spiral arms of the pair have just started to touch each other, giving it a shape of some sea-shell floating in the Universe, may be harboring a pearl inside!!
