Most galaxies travel away from our galaxy, not closer to it. There are still exceptions.

As the universe grows, most galaxies move away from the galaxy of growth. Consequently, these galaxies appear on the red side of the spectrum, a phenomenon known as redshift.
However, Messier 90 compresses the frequency of its light as it moves closer to us. It makes it closer to the blue side of the spectrum, a phenomenon known as blueshift.
It is important to note that the Virgo cluster, where Messier 90 is a part, moves away from us. But Messier 90 actually moves faster than other galaxies in the cluster, making it seem like it is running toward the Milky Way. The cluster's tremendous mass accelerates some of these galaxies at very high speeds.
Just look at how beautiful it makes them.

You would totally take a selfie with this galaxy.
