4/03/2011 - Giant Galaxy NGC 6872. This galaxy is over 400,000 ly across which is at least 4 times the size of our own Milky Way. About 200 mly distant, toward the southern constellation Pavo, the Peacock, this galaxy is interacting with a smaller galaxy IC 4970, which is just below and to the right of the giant galaxy's core. This image was taken with the 8-meter Gemini South telescope in Chile.
