Not sure how to classify this

    Does the orange star count as merging? Doesn't really look like it but not sure

    Hi aleeivei and welcome to the Zoo

    The orange object is indeed a foreground star from our galaxy so it is impossible that it is interacting/merging with the central galaxy.

    Happy hunting !
