Ring Galaxy -- A subclass of interacting galaxies, ring galaxies, provides a unique laboratory for studying unusually large bursts of non-nuclear star formation. The rings in these systems are often large (10s of kiloparsecs) and contain what appear to be associations of giant H{\small II} regions. As a basis for future modeling of star forming regions in observed ring galaxies we present a series of combined n-body/gas numerical experiments on ring formation and evolution. Three...

Cartwheel Galaxy -- Located 500 million light-years away in the constellation Sculptor, the Cartwheel Galaxy looks like a wagon wheel. The galaxy's nucleus is the bright object in the center of the image; the spoke-like structures are wisps of material connecting the nucleus to the outer ring of young stars. This close-up image of the galaxy's nucleus reveals the comet-like knots of gas. These knots are mostly confined to the core's left side and appear as white streaks inside the blue...

Andromeda Galaxy -- The Andromeda Galaxy, also known as M31, or the object 31 on the catalog of Messier, is the other giant spiral galaxy in the Local Group, together with our galaxy, the Milky Way. It is at a distance of approximately 2.36 million light years or 725 kpc, in the direction of the constellation Andromeda, and it will probably merge in the future with our galaxy, to form a giant elliptical. With a mass of about 1.5 times more than the Milky Way, it is the dominant galaxy...
