Visualisation of MUSE view of Jellyfish Galaxy

This visualisation shows a jellyfish galaxy in the three-dimensional view of the MUSE instrument on ESO's Very Large Telescope. This combines the normal two-dimensional view with the third dimension of wavelength. This galaxy has undergone ram pressure stripping as it moves rapidly into the hot gas in a galaxy cluster, and streamers of gas and young stars are trailing behind it. These show up as the tentacles extending to the right in this picture as they have different velocities to the main disc of the galaxy, shown at the left.

a 3D interactive view of this galaxy is available.
