    no disturbance indicating a merger. NED lists as #polar_ring, but looks like a spectacular #overlap as there are clearly two nuclei here.

    what could that beam of light be? it looks like another source of light, apart from the galaxy .!

    That is not a beam of light but another galaxy overlapping the background galaxy. Beautiful #overlap

    #G-pair It seems the galaxy that looks to be in front is actually behind

    Still an #overlap. You can see faint dustanes of the disk galaxy crossing the edgeon galaxy just north and south of the core - Nice!

    I don't know, if this is a merger or not...

    an #edgeon with a very intense core #overlap s a farther away regular #spiral galaxy, probably not a merger
