Panning across the galaxies NGC 1316 and 1317

This pan video gives a close look at a new image from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. It shows a pair of contrasting galaxies: NGC 1316, and its smaller companion NGC 1317 (right). NGC 1317 seems to be relatively unperturbed and has a clear spiral structure. But its larger neighbour bears the scars of several past violent events when it has swallowed other galaxies.
