UGC 2942

The overlapping spiral galaxies UGC 2942 and UGC 2943, in a color-composite CCD image taken with the Cerro Tololo 1.5-meter telescope. The blue disk colors are clear, as is the reddening by dust across the center of the more edge-on UGC 2943. The foreground galaxy is not completely opaque, since the dust lane in the background galaxy can be traced across the overlap region. The data were obtained by W. Keel and W. White, III.
