I really love the contrast of this distant spiral blue galaxy embracing the red galaxy. As an image it is striking. Simbad doesnt have anything on it, just the star near it. Not sure how to look it up in LEDA as was mentioned in another posted galaxy. I’m sure it is just a number. Do you think the small blue galactic cloud to the far left was once part of it?
