Don't have any pics but the recently witnessed neutron star collision, which created gold, platinum and other heavy elements, I found very fascinating.
It occurred 300 million light years away so we are now only witnessing an event that occurred 300 million years ago. It's mind boggling

Would love to see pics of that. Fascinating stuff. It means that at some point in the future, something like this could happen directly in our path. Meaning that what obliterates our galaxy could have already happened; just hasn't reached us yet.

Yeah it's a bit mad Noah !
Neutron star collisions also produce powerful Gamma Rays which are dangerous to life.
This recently observed event was so far away that the Gamma Rays are harmless, but a closer event could pose a danger to Earth and there's nothing we could do about it.

I saw a video, albeit animation, of what happens when too galaxies move too close to each other. I get fascinated by how big the universe actually is. Makes us mere mortals here on earth so insignificant.
