    Can anyone account for the irregular top half of this galaxy?

    #merger #overlap I am leaning towards overlapping galaxies. Anyone else?

    Closer galaxies in an overlap situation do seem to create the illusion a dark area around them, which can make an otherwise smooth galaxy SEEM distorted.

    I agree on overlap, because if you ignore the upper right object, the central galaxy seems pretty regular.
