merging galaxies

    Are these two merging galaxies or should I be ignoring the one on the right and only focus on the yellow blur in the centre?

    Hi and welcome to the Zoo @hilscakes 😃

    Very good question! Only ever classify the object at the center - disregard all other objects.

    In this case it looks like we have overlapping galaxies, There is no interaction between them, so unlikely to be a merger.
