View astrophysicsman's Instagram A typical galaxy collision can last hundreds of millions of years, during which time the gravity from both galaxies can distort their original shape and cause a wave of increased star formation.

Today, galactic collisions are quite rare, yet early in the universe's history, they were much more common. Because the universe is expanding, galaxies were closer together in the past, and thus galaxy collisions happened more frequently. 
A galactic collision almost always happens between two spiral galaxies. As they approach one another, their gravity starts to pull on the other galaxy. This will cause the spiral arms of both galaxies to stretch, distorting their overall shape. Yet due to the vast distances between individual stars, it's very unlikely that during a galactic collision any stars would actually collide. If the Milky Way were to collide with the Andromeda Galaxy--which will likely happen in the next few billion years-- it's highly unlikely another star would disturb our solar system. 
On the other hand, galactic collisions can create quite a show on a large scale. As both galaxies approach one another, their gravity pulls on the other. This can create tidal forces that can heat up nebulae within the galaxies, leading to star formation. As I mentioned earlier, it's highly unlikely any stars will collide while two galaxies merge, however, it's very likely that nebulae will collide because they are much larger. The collision of nebulae can also cause an increase in star formation, leading to a phase called a starburst phase.

View astrophysicsman's Instagram M100: A Grand Design Spiral Galaxy
.
"For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind."
.
Majestic on a truly cosmic scale, M100 is appropriately known as a grand design spiral galaxy. It is a large galaxy of over 100 billion stars with well-defined spiral arms that is similar to our own Milky Way Galaxy. One of the brightest members of the Virgo Cluster of galaxies, M100 (alias NGC 4321) is 56 million light-years distant toward the constellation of Berenice's Hair (Coma Berenices). This Hubble Space Telescope image of M100 was made in 2009 and reveals bright blue star clusters and intricate winding dust lanes which are hallmarks of this class of galaxies. Studies of variable stars in M100 have played an important role in determining the size and age of the Universe. If you know exactly where to look, you can find a small spot that is a light echo from a bright supernova that was recorded a few years before the image was taken.

View spatium_escape's Instagram Residing 158,800 light years away rests the breathtaking tarantula nebula. The
diameter of this enormous nebula is estimated to be
around 2000 light years across. This spectacular
nebula is believed to be the most violent star
forming region within the entire local group of
galaxies. Stellar winds, unforgiving radiation and
Supernova shocks from the central cluster of
massive stars invigorate the nebula's incredible
glow and shape. The scale of the tarantula nebula is
difficult to appreciate without observing in person.
To put it into perspective, if the turantula nebula was
1500 light years away from earth, it would take up
half the sky.

View sopernoova's Instagram That's no moon... oh wait, yes it is. It's Saturn's moon Mimas and it's large Herschel Crater. Shadows cast across the moon, provide an indication of the size of the crater's towering walls and central peak.

Named after the icy moon's discoverer, astronomer William Herschel, the crater stretches 86 miles (139 kilometers) wide -- almost one-third of the diameter of Mimas (246 miles or 396 kilometers) itself. Large impact craters often have peaks in their center. Herschel's peak stands nearly as tall as Mount Everest on Earth.

View apeironuniverse's Instagram If you could circle the Earth aboard the International Space Station, what might you see? Some amazing vistas, one of which was captured in this breathtaking picture in mid-2015. First, visible at the top, are parts of the space station itself including solar panels. Just below the station is the band of our Milky Way Galaxy, glowing with the combined light of billions of stars, but dimmed in patches by filaments of dark dust. The band of red light just below the Milky Way is airglow -- Earth's atmosphere excited by the Sun and glowing in specific colors of light. Green airglow is visible below the red. Of course that's our Earth below its air, with theterminator between day and night visible near the horizon. As clouds speckle the planet, illumination from a bright lightning bolt is seen toward the lower right. Between work assignments, astronauts from all over the Earth have been enjoying vistas like this from the space station since the year 2000.

From the most powerful telescope orbiting Mars comes a new view of Earth and its moon, showing continent-size detail on the planet and the relative size of the moon.

View astrophysicsman's Instagram Located in the constellation Cepheus at approximately 7,500 light years away from earth resides the Wizard Nebula. Although only spanning a mere 110 light years across, the size of the Wizard Nebula is expanding over time, therefore increasing its diminutive size. This magical open star cluster is particularly hard to view as it requires extremely dark skies and an O-III filter but the effort is definitely worth it. The deep blue contrasts with the golden yellow, making it a spectacular choice for a well equipped astrophotographer. Even though hard to capture, the Wizard Nebula is certainly rewarding.

View spatium_escape's Instagram NGC 6872: Stretched Spiral Galaxy "For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy
faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens." What makes this spiral galaxy so long? Measuring
over 700,000 light years across from top to bottom,
NGC 6872, also known as the Condor galaxy, is one
of the most elongated barred spiral galaxies known.
The galaxy's protracted shape likely results from its
Continuing collision with the smaller galaxy IC 4970,
visible just above center. Of particular interest is
NGC 6872's spiral arm on the upper left, as pictured
here, which exhibits an unusually high amount of
blue star forming regions. The light we see today left
these colliding giants before the days of the dinosaurs, about 300 million years ago. NGC 6872
is visible with a small telescope toward the constellation of the Peacock (Pavo). #amazing #astronomy #beauty #chandra #bible

NGC 6872: Stretched Spiral Galaxy "For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens." What makes this spiral galaxy so long? Measuring over 700,000 light years across from top to bottom, NGC 6872, also known as the Condor galaxy, is one of the most elongated barred spiral galaxies known. The galaxy's protracted shape likely results from its Continuing collision with the smaller galaxy IC 4970, visible just above center. Of particular interest is NGC 6872's spiral arm on the upper left, as pictured here, which exhibits an unusually high amount of blue star forming regions. The light we see today left these colliding giants before the days of the dinosaurs, about 300 million years ago. NGC 6872 is visible with a small telescope toward the constellation of the Peacock (Pavo). #amazing #astronomy #beauty #chandra #bible #bibletext #nasabeyond #constellation #creation #galaxy #hubble #hubbletelescope #interstellar #nature #cosmos #hubblehangout #space #universe #scripture #cosmology #science
