    Whoa! Fascinating object! Triple merger? Lens? Unusual overlap? Luminous ferret-god spying on us from a parallel universe?

    Have you seen the difference between the Skyserver and the GAMA-KiDS image ? Amazing !

    Btw, what does MTG and LTG mean ?

    very blurred, 3 bright blobs, not sure if they are at the same distance, or this is 2 things merging with one nearer

    Agree, hard to know distance.

    Yes, the central galaxy is at a #redshift of 0.096 (#lookback-time of 1.25 billion years) but we don't have distances for the other 2 blobs!

    You can clearly see the galaxy in the background but it is difficult to tell if the object in the foreground is interacting with the galaxy.

    The bright white object is a foreground star from our galaxy, so it is definitely NOT interacting with thte central gaalxy.
