    This looks to me like a #merger. A bit like the Cartwheel galaxy, but in a different orientation.

    In fact a search on NED reveals it's Arp 148 which is a known merger and also has an actively accreting black hole (AGN) in there.

    it looks like some sort of jet on a galaxy with a ring. and how does one tell if its a merger or one galaxy very far in front of the other?

    It definitely looks like a combo of 2 galaxies caught at the perfect moment. Really nice image! Good shot!
