The Tadpole galaxy, a result of interaction between two different galaxies which left a trail of bright blue stars.  The remains of the smaller galaxy can still be seen in the upper left corner of the picture.  Over 3000 galaxies form an amazing backdrop for the Tadpole galaxy which lies 420 million light years away in the constellation Draco.
