    #What is this? #starforming areas on edges of an #elliptical galaxy

    This is definitely not an elliptical galaxy.I'd go for a disturbed, barred spiral with star forming areas.

    Looks like a distorted barred spiral. Perhaps the red dot is a partner object causing disruption?

    The red dot is a foreground star from our galaxy. No connection with the central galaxy.
