The Hubble Space Telescope has been watching a pair of galaxies tear each other apart and – quite coincidentally – one resembles a penguin and the other its egg.

The “egg” is more correctly known as NGC 2937, and the “penguin”, which was once a spiral galaxy, NGC 2936.

The galaxies are 326 million light years from Earth in the constellation Hydra.
