Astronomy Science ~ Neighboring and bright, spiral galaxy M65 (above) and M66 stand out in this cosmic portrait. The pair is only 35 million light years away and stretches about 100,000 light-years across, roughly the size of our Milky Way spiral galaxy.

While both showed prominent dust lanes along the spiral arms of their area, in particular M66 has a striking contrast in red and blue, Telltale light pinkish - forming hydrogen gas mark regions and young blue star clusters. M65 and M66 form two-thirds of the famous Leo Triplet galaxies with warps and tidal tails that show evidence of meeting these groups in the past. M66 has become host to four supernova.
