    why do you say disturbed?

    Agree with @elizabeth - certainly not disturbed!

    the color is that of slight starforming, which is not atypical for the galaxy's redshift.

    typical spiral galaxies have an orangish-yellowish color, but disturbed ones have a pale grey-green-blue color to them, like this one does.

    In order to classify a galaxy as 'disturbed' you need to look at the shape of the galaxy, not the colour.

    From @klmasters: "we usually reserve the term disturbed for things which are very asymmetric."

    on second thought, I meant starforming, not disturbed.
