NGC 1073



NGC 1073. Originally photographed by Hubble in 1950. Arp and Sulentic observed it's 3 quasars in 1979.

"This was the first example of multiple quasars very close to galaxies, which, of course, would be very much less likely to occur by chance than single quasars close to galaxies." -- Halton C. Arp, astronomer, 1987

Even Aquinas didn't have to accept this many miracles.
