missing chunk

    Is this a side on of a desk - if so where is the missing upper left. Or is this an oblique of a 2 armed spiral with a bar and a big black hole at its center or ???

    It looks like a edge-on galaxy that is merging / interacting with its neighbour. That would account for it's rather disturbed shape!
    No black holes visible 😃

    Happy Hunting!
