Astronomy Science ~ Elliptical galaxy M60 and the Spiral galaxy NGC 4647 is seen as an odd couple in the cosmic picture by the Hubble space telescope. But they are found in a region of space where galaxies tend to congregate, near the eastern side of the Virgo galaxy cluster. About 54 million light-years away, the bright light of the egg-shaped like M60 was created by a random crowd of older stars, while blue stars, gas and dust of NGC 4647 is arranged in a winding arm which rotates in a flattened disk.

Spiral galaxy NGC 4647 is estimated at more distant than M60, about 63 million light years away. Also known as Arp 116, the pair of galaxies is probably on the verge of meeting a significant gravity. M60 (aka NGC 4649) spans about 120,000 light years. Smaller NGC 4647 is about 90,000 light-years, nearly equal to the size of our Milky Way.
