Illustris image of strange galaxy?
Comments and thoughts welcome - what is happening here? Could be new star formation in the blue areas but what is exciting these regions to initiate star formation if that's what is happening?

Maybe two galaxies interacting ?

I would personally go with star formation for the blue bits. The rest is harder to define - late stage merger with the galaxy on right?
Just my 2 cents worth 😃
