How do we know?

    How do we tell if this is a merger or just 4 stars in front of the galaxy?

    Hi fireandice and welcome the Zoo

    The four objects in the center are indeed galaxies and they are probably interacting.
    Galaxies usually have a more fuzzy edge and stars are very round.

    Happy hunting ! 😄.
