    Are these galaxies interacting with the bright bull's eye?

    The bright bull's eye is in fact a foreground star from our galaxy. The colors, rings and spikes are all optical artifacts.

    And obviously no interaction whatsoever with the galaxies. Nice chance alignment ! 😄

    Is this a star artifact? The gallaxies seem to have a tendency to point to it though.

    The spiky object is indeed a foreground star. The galaxies pointing to it is nothing but a chance alignment.
