Hubble picks up a space penguin – big picture

The Hubble Space Telescope has been watching a pair of galaxies tear each other apart and – quite coincidentally – one resembles a penguin and the other its egg. The 'egg' is more correctly known as NGC 2937, and the 'penguin', which was once a spiral galaxy, NGC 2936. The galaxies are 326m light years from Earth in the constellation Hydra
