    Is this a dust lane or a very cool merger??

    Interesting object!

    I suspect merger because each half appears to have a separate bulge.

    This could make a good 'O' or a 'p' for the galaxy alphabet.

    Or seriously, two disc galaxies approaching each other face on (and we see edge on). Neat orientation to simulate....

    Could this be some sort of gravity lens effect?

    I'm for the gravity lens, just at quick glance. Beautiful image, anyway.

    Two disturbed galaxies. Definitely not a lens

    Looks like a giant coffee bean in space 😃 They look so identical, just mirrored. Interesting!

    I think we're watching a collision. It would be more stretched if it were a gravitational-lens-effect.

    Definitely some interaction going on. Nice #merger. No gravitatonal lens in this image.
