|Like huge eddies in a great celestial sea, these two galaxies swirl
undisturbed in the constellation of Cetus. NGC 945 (the larger of the two) is
one of main galaxies in a sparse group in this direction of sky. These galaxies
are estimated to be over 150 million light years away. In the past NGC 945
has sported a supernova that was detected by astronomers.
