That’s weird-looking! Maybe a merger between two galaxies, one edge-on? I think maybe the round one is in front - it looks like there is some dust that makes the flat-looking galaxy orange-colored in the middle.
Nice find!

Ah I see - thank you. I’m going to keep telling myself its a supermassive flying saucer however

Wauw what an interesting find! With the VLASS Images it is shown that the green blue ball up top emits quite some radiowaves, more than the parts below. I am not sure what it means exactly, but every day I am learning more new things on here :smiley:
