(a pair of galaxies aligned with us)
NGC 3314 is two spiral galaxies, 117 and 140 million light-years
away, aligned to appear as one object to us,
which allows unique research as electromagnetic radiation from the further one
passes through the nearer. There is no galaxy interaction: with
their distance-difference, they are not close to each other.
They are known as NGC3314a in front and NGC3314b behind.
