    |Could this be a cluster of galaxies?

    I think that's one very clumpy, irregular (and very interesting) galaxy. Neat find!

    It looks more like an irregular galaxy. A cluster of galaxies will be less defined around the edges and will usually have more red elliptical galaxies towards its centre as well.
    This looks clumpy due to areas of star formation within the galaxy, rather than it being a collection of distinct galaxies.
