Wow! :exploding_head:

I’ve never see anything quite like that

I see a story of a massive SMBH X-ray source spiral (NGC5614), a smaller pseudo-ring spiral (NGC5613), and other objects

The big guy is a piece of work, registered as a source of radio, Far-IR, Near-IR, UV, and X-Ray… not to mention the whole eye-candy aspect of the Sa(r) beast :sunglasses:

It is a tight spiral-2 with very strong & prominent matching dust lanes

The infalling object with the thick trail at top right is NGC5615. It is uncertain whether it is a core or a galaxy and finally the pretty S0(r) galaxy at the top which looped around everything once or twice may have made its escape from the big bad boy at the bottom. Whew! :sweat_smile:
