Hi all,

An infrequent view of two otherwise boring elliptical galaxies, M84 and M86, has been uploaded. This image shows very faint (and seldom shown) Hydrogen II clouds between M86 and NGC 4438 (Eyes Galaxies). There is still debate as whether these clouds are the result of a previous gravitational encounter between M86 and NGC 4438 or they could also be galactic cirri belonging to our own galaxy and placed, by coincidence in this field of view. Over 37 hours of Ha images were needed to show them. You can find the image as well as some more info at:

Messier 84, Messier 86 and the Eyes Galaxies
