Galactic beauty

The Astronomy Picture of the Day website is always worth looking at (I have it as my homepage to get my day off to a good start) but today's image is particularly beautiful.

It shows Galaxy NGC 474, with its wonderful and complex emission layers, which are intriguing astronomers. The image also shows its neighbouring galaxy, with which NGC 474 is slowly (very slowly) colliding.
