We present GALEX FUV (1530 A) and NUV (2310 A) observations of the archetypal merging system NGC 4038/39, "The Antennae". Both tails are relatively bright in the UV, especially in the vicinity of the Tidal Dwarf Galaxy candidates at the end of the southern tail. The UV light generally falls within the optically delineated tails, although the UV light is considerably more structured, with a remarkably similar morphology to the tidal HI. The UV colors suggest that there has been continuing stardoi:10.1086/423244 fatcat:wxpj4rdgdzd2lbgmmwq3iwz5ru
