Found in the dense Virgo Galaxy Cluster, NGC 4216 is centered in this deep telescopic portrait flanked by fellow Virgo cluster members NGC 4206 (right) and NGC 4222. Like other large spirals, including the Milky Way, NGC 4216 has grown by cannibalizing smaller satellite galaxies. In fact, this view has caught it in the act, with still distinct satellite galaxies showing faint star streams extending for thousands of light-years into the halo of NGC 4216.In the galactic halo of this galaxy, in addition to a rich system of globular clusters - five times more than our galaxy - are two streams of stars of several kiloparsecs in length and with a well defined nucleus that are interpreted as two dwarf galaxies in process Of disruption and absorption by NGC 4216.Although it appears practically in profile, it is considered an intermediate spiral galaxy, that is to say, its aspect is between a barred spiral galaxy and one that does not have bar.Information credits: APOD & Wikipedia
