Although most galaxies fall into well defined classifications, there are some that defy all attempts at classification. While some strange and bizarre galaxies are the result of gravitational interactions with other more massive, and sometimes less massive objects, they all have one thing in common; they look more like artists’ impressions than real, tangible collections of billions of stars.

Winds Trigger Pond Growth
Winds Trigger Pond Growth Wind is a force to be reckoned with. It can stir up monsoons carry dust thousands of miles and sculpt rock into sinuous arches. But sometimes the effects of wind go unnoticed for years like when it carves away slowly at the edges of a pond. July 07 2017
Sequence of Juno Spacecraft's Close Approach to Jupiter
When the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft flew by Saturn in 1980 and 1981, they were able to pay only fleeting attention to Titan, the second largest moon in the solar system (larger even than the planet Mercury) and the only solar system moon with an appreciable atmosphere. These images are from subsequent Titan flybys in 2005 and 2006. - Image credit: NASA / JPL / University of Arizona
