The “warp” in the Milky Way appears to be due to a slow-motion collision between some unexplained dark matter and two of the galaxy’s neighbors called the Magellanic Clouds. Dark matter does not reflect or emit visible light, but astronomers can detect its presence by the gravitational effect it has on other visible celestial bodies. It is now theorized that the movement of the Magellanic Clouds through dark matter is causing a gravitational pull on our galaxy, and thus its warped appearance.
