    Hi Dianas1505 😃

    What image are you referring to? I can see 2 on the left hand side 😃
    The red one is the result of optical atrifacts - in this case filter and imaging errors.
    The other one look like merging galaxies - they do look quite disturbed 😃

    Have a read of this thread here for more info on artifacts; or this post for information on mergers

    Happy Hunting!
