Cartwheel-like collison?

Hi everybody,

pretty cartwheel-like galaxy ~30’’ close to a distant galaxy cluster. The early type galaxy probably hit the center of a gas rich dsik at high speed and caused a density wave, with lots of star-formation activity in its wake. Despite the distance, young stellar atmospheres shine brightly in the GALEX UV-map. From the photo-z, it’s probably between 0.2<z<0.3.
