It's A Galactic Eclipse!

Call your astrologer! What does it mean when one galaxy passes in front of another? I'm guessing it means you'll find love, or spontaneous human combustion or something. Ground-based telescopes saw these overlapping galaxies as a single blob, but the Hubble Space Telescope was able to distinguish two different galaxies, a small one passing in front of a larger one, both about 780 million light years away.
