I was browsing sites on the galaxies in response to another thread, and I encountered a rather unusual picture of ESO 510-G13 Hubble Photographs Warped Galaxy as Camera Passes Milestone http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2001/23/ http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/2001/23/image/a/ http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap030607.html http://www.eso.org/public/images/eso9924e/ The galactic plane is 'bent'. I'm curious as to the reason. I was also interested in a comment about a 'recent' interaction with another galaxy. But how recent? And another interesting comment - The Milky Way Galaxy is Warped - apparently somewhat like ESO 510-G13! http://www.etnaastros.com/documents/MW_Warped_2-06.pdf Are there other galaxies similarly warped?
