Description:

This webpage has descriptions and animations from numerical simulations of colliding galaxies. Normal observation shows interacting galaxies apparently frozen in the midst of billion-year-long collisions. These movies transcend a limited view of time by indicating the past and future of such encounters. The webpage examines interactions between galaxies, paths of different orbits, and theories of structure.
