The image was captured thanks to a collaboration between the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the NASA Hubble Space Telescope, and the ESO Very Large Telescope (European Southern Observatory).

The ESO 137-001 galaxy is notable for moving through space at approximately 1.5 million miles per hour (2.4 kilometers per hour), leaving not just one but two tails in its wake. This trail is composed of superheated gas detected by Chandra in X-rays (blue), while the red seen in the image represents hydrogen atoms detected by the Very Large Telescope. Optical and infrared data from the Hubble Telescope is also added to the image (orange and cyan).
