Perspective strikes again!

OMG!  Two galaxies tearing into each other, ripping suns and systems to bits...
or, not.

The Hubble views a grand universe and, with all visual perceptions, space and position can be deceiving to the eye.  For instance, kicking around the moon...

It's all about how we view things. 
Calvin Coolidge got it right. “If you see ten troubles coming down the road,” he said, “you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you and you have to battle with only one of them.” With an outlook like that, it’s easy to understand why Silent Cal was seldom anxious. Unfortunately, many people see the ten troubles and leap into action ten different ways.  Perhaps the President was more aware of the perspective - what may appear to be a major threat, or hassle, turns out to be merely a perception.
