I really like this interaction. Also, I notice a very red cluster in the background. DR9 photometric redshift says z β‰ˆ 0.8, so about 9 Glyrs comoving radial distance, according to https://astro.ucla.edu/~wright/CosmoCalc.html

agree ~ lovely string of five or so galaxies, plus a large NGC immediately south, plus the high z cluster ~ the Euclid telescope with it’s wide-angle of view telescope would capture this whole scene in amazing detail
