    I see that It has spirals but what is the stuff to the left it. IS that considered a spiral or just gas.

    Not so sure about merger. Do you have the object ID of the galaxy you think it is merging with - so I can have a closer look?

    @crazy_hair2000 - yes this would still be considered a spiral. The "gas" on the left are still stars that are part of the galaxy.

    http://i.imgur.com/zT1TK3th.jpg seems plausible.. they're almost the same color.. probably just a foreground star, though

    @floortap - I would have to say no merger. This galaxy has most likely been merged in the past, but it starting to settle down.
