The galaxy merger, known as Arp-Madore 417-391, is located 671 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. .

Captured by the Hubble Space Telescope, it is the result of two galaxies that were distorted by gravity and twisted together into a ring.

The galaxy merger Arp-Madore 417-391 steals the spotlight in this image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope

The telescope used its Advanced Camera for Surveys to snap this scene and the ESA said that the instrument is optimized to hunt for galaxies and galaxy clusters in the ancient universe. 

The Arp-Madore catalog is a collection of strange galaxies spread across the southern sky. 

The photo comes from a selection of Hubble observations that are designed to create a list of intriguing targets for follow-up observations with the international James Webb Space Telescope and other ground-based telescopes
