Stephan's Quintet and NGC 7331

Ultraviolet image of the interacting group of galaxies known as Stephan's Quintet (NGC7317, NGC7318A, NGC7318B, NGC7319, NGC7320, lower left). Of the five galaxies in this tightly packed group, NGC7320 (the large spiral in the group) is probably a foreground galaxy and not associated with the other four.
