    You don't mean the blue star from our galaxy. I don't see much interaction with the other galaxy? A nice ring on this one otherwise.

    No I wasn't refering to the foreground star. I was referring to their proximity to each other and their similar relative sizes.

    No way to tell from just this pic if these galaxies are actually close together or only appear to be & no distortion to speak of.
    No merger

    Elisabeth, just a n00b question but, when are these pictures captured ? Are there new captures comming in every day? Or are this old ones?


  • Cency by Cency

    Invert this picture and it is clear there is the beginnings of a merger.

    #Ring galaxy with #bar. Merging with the other galaxy (not with the blue star) is possible. Tag it with #merger
