    It's strange and the two colors are very distinct. I don't know what is it.
    This is the birth of a star ?

    The birth of many stars - these are two galaxies in the process of merging. Different colors show different types of stars.

    What if they are #overlapping? In SDSS three bright nuclei are more visibles: more redshift information and spectra could help.

    With these kind of distortions it's definitely a merger.

    Yep. Overlapping galaxies would still look more symmetrical than these.
