Hubble Gallery - NGC 3310

Located around 60 million ly away in the constellation of Ursa Major, NGC3310 is known as a starburst galaxy due to its high rate of star formation. Seen as blue clusters in the photo opposite, it may have been triggered by a collision with a neighbouring galaxy around 100 million years ago.
This picture was taken by Hubble's WFPC2 in March 1997.
