collision with small galaxy?

    Or just a coincidence (red object is overlapping and not associated with tail)?

    Or, a supermassive black hole snacking on a galaxy?

    Or a hole in this universe, with a galaxy being sucked into another dimension?

    Or, I have an overactive imagination?

    The red object is probably a well placed foreground star 😃
    The galaxy itself is obviously disturbed, but there is no obviously culprit in the zoomed out image. Could be the result of a flyby.
