Dust Lane, or disturbed image? I'm not sure.

Hi eminentdomain and welcome to the Zoo
It looks like there are two galaxies, probably merging. But with these fuzzy images it is allways difficult to tell. Just give it your best shot.
Happy hunting ! 😄
Two galaxies probably merging is a good bet. The galaxies are mentioned in the first GZ paper: "Galaxy Zoo 1: data release of morphological classifications", but the id number doesn't show on the old forum as it would have been SDSS DR6 or 7, not 8.
