    I wonder which of these two are closer to us. The large red or the small blue.

    Their redshifts are very close (0.0209 and 0.02089), so it is possible these galaxies are close to each other

    Not sure if this is a merger between two elliptical galaxies or something else?

    They could be companions as there seems to be no interaction.

    Not much distortion, so no merger. And these two galaxies are derfinitely not ellipticals but disks or spirals.seen edge on
