Collision of Galaxies

I always wondered how it would be to view a (spectacular) collision of two galaxies! I imagined that it would result in a devastating display of fireworks! Well, that's only my imagination. I'm not a Physics student to come up with a mathematical equation describing what would happen in such cases! (I even don't know if we can derive like that!).

Here is a brief explanation on what might happen as two Spiral galaxies are approaching nearer to each other! It says the whole process takes over hundreds of millions of years! I wish, at least, it starts the process in my life time! I love to see the event!
