Stephan's Quintent is a compact group of four interacting galaxies and one foreground galaxy.  The galaxy to the upper left (mostly bright blue color) is only about 70 million light years away, the other 4 galaxies are 300 million light years away.  300 million years ago, Earth had one super continent, Pangea
