NGC 4298 and 4302

NGC 4298 + 4302 

 

 

This is a nice pair of interacting galaxies located about 55 million light-years away in the constellation Coma Berenices as a part of the Virgo galaxy cluster (roughly between M99 and M100). NGC 4302 is the edge-on spiral (Seyfert) galaxy and NGC 4298 is the flocculent spiral galaxy.
In the field an extremely distant quasar with redshift z=4.27 was even captured (marked by an arrow under the upper right corner of the picture), it's light was traveling to us for some 12.2 billion light-years.
