These two physically related galaxies (both about 50 million light years away) are located in the constellation Canes Venatici. They make a nice pair because of the their dissimilar shapes and colors. NGC 5033 in the lower left is a spiral galaxy whose arms, especially the one to the lower left of its center, have been somewhat warped by gravitational interaction with other galaxies (probably not NGC 5005 at the upper right, but more likely two smaller galaxies that are outside the frame below NGC 5033).
