Time for a cosmic crossover!

Two galaxies collectively known as IC 1623 are seen merging together in these images from Hubble (left) and NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (right).

Their collision has ignited a frenzy of starbirth, creating new stars at a rate more than twenty times than that of our Milky Way Galaxy!

Hubble’s view shows this interaction in visible light – what our human eyes can detect – showing the dark dust that obscures the galaxies’ individual centers.

Webb’s infrared vision peers through that dust and shows the gas being used as fuel for star formation.
