Watch| Stunning galaxies' merger 671 million light-years away in latest Hubble image 

The merger known as Arp-Madore 417-391, is located 671 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus.

The Hubble Telescope which continues to send back stunning images of the universe has once again worked its magic in the void.

This time, the telescope's Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) captured a photo of a peculiar galaxy merger in the ancient universe. The image was released by scientists of NASA and European Space Agency (ESA) on Friday showing a pair of merging galaxies.

The merger known as Arp-Madore 417-391, is located 671 million light-years away in the constellation Eridanus. The picture has captured the two galaxies distorted by gravity, twisted together into a ring.

Explaining further, NASA said that the Arp-Madore catalog is a collection of particularly unusual galaxies spread throughout the southern sky.

Sharing the image on Twitter, the official handle of Hubble wrote, 'Merge ahead. This #HubbleFriday image showcases the peculiar galaxy merger known as Arp-Madore 417-391. At 671 million light-years away, this merger is the result of two galaxies that were distorted by gravity and twisted together into a ring.'

The ESA said that the ACS is specially made to hunt for galaxies and galaxy clusters in the ancient universe.

'Hubble's ACS has been contributing to scientific discovery for 20 years, and throughout its lifetime it has been involved in everything from mapping the distribution of dark matter to studying the evolution of galaxy clusters,' the ESA said.
