Unraveling NGC 3169

Explanation: Spiral galaxy NGC 3169 looks to be unraveling like a ball of cosmic yarn. It lies some 70 million light-years away, south of bright star Regulus toward the faint constellation Sextans. Wound up spiral arms are pulled out into sweeping tidal tails as NGC 3169 (left) and neighboring NGC 3166 interact gravitationally. Eventually the galaxies will merge into one, a common fate even for bright galaxies in the local universe. Drawn out stellar arcs and plumes are clear indications of the ongoing gravitational interactions across the deep and colorful galaxy group photo. The telescopic frame spans about 20 arc minutes or about 400,000 light-years at the group’s estimated distance, and includes smaller, bluish NGC 3165 at the right. NGC 3169 is also known to shine across the spectrum from radio to X-rays, harboring an active galactic nucleus that is the site of a supermassive black hole.

99 44/100 pure applies to much of my cat-life. If you have small children or neighbors within 1 mile of your fenced property you do NOT need a big dog. Any pit bull or mix is included. If a pet can kill you it is 99 44/100 percent certain that you don’t need it.
Any politician who won’t support a better education for half the current costs, for your children, is a corrupt Democrat. The Democrats violate the 99 44/100 rule. They are that percent corrupt.
Almost all ads/commercials are deceptive and/or dangerous. The Ivory Rule was made for them.
