quote for the day

The above image is a close up of an interacting galaxy(I don't think there's any galaxy that doesn't have interacting irregular galaxies; but, maybe not always as big as what M51 has to deal with). I give a picture of M51 below to give some perspective on what the above picture is referring to.
