What interests me about this galaxy's shape is the deformity of its "circular" shape in the lower lefthand area. A more clear image could be more telling, but I wonder what forces of gravity are concentrating objects away from the general influence of the galaxy's center in what I can best describe as a bump.

The galaxy definitely looks disturbed but there is no obviously culprit in sight ! 😄
Happy hunting !
