    2 spirals in the beginnings of merging. Looks like the leading edge of the smaller one is moving gas off the leading edge of the other

    how do you tell if these are merging if there are no photo Z values? #question

    There are photoZ middle one 0.08±0.02 other galaxy 0.07±0.02, so inconclusive, so look at morphology

    Big galaxy possibly slightly disturbed. No blue star-forming areas. If merging, has just started

    I wonder if the blue spot is a voorwerje. Skyserver says star, but it could be wrong. no PhotoZ

    @budgieye I read that #supernova thread - very cool 😃 but how do you tell if it's a supernovae - was slightly blinded by data there!

  • Budgieye by Budgieye moderator

    You can tell that it is a supernova, it is bright blue and has sharp edges, then by going into NED or SIMBAD.
