several merging galaxies or fortuitous star placement?

    I absolutely love this image! It looks to me at least like 5 smaller galaxies orbiting on an ELLIPTICAL around a larger galaxy. Can someone explain this? Are those galaxies or stars? Are they going to collide with the bigger galaxy or will they continue to orbit?
    P.S. I absolutely love this website! I never imagined I'd see something so spectacular! Hats off to you 😃
