Hubble Space Telescope has snapped two passing galaxies making contact for the first time. UGC 2369, the duo is expected to merge one day and form a single galaxy. The two galaxies can be seen swirling around one another, as their gravity pulls them closer. All that right now connects the two galaxies are believed to be a tenuous bridge of gas, dust and stars. This can give us a glimpse of our own galaxy's destiny.
