    What is it? 2 stars?

    One object is (almost certainly) an #ETG ("early-type galaxy", i.e. an elliptical or lenticular). Its #asymmetric outer parts strongly suggests some kind of #merger. However, whether the smaller, whiter, object is part of that merger, or an unrelated #overlap galaxy, or a star in our own galaxy, can't be worked out from just this image alone (not confidently anyway).
