Markarian’s “eyes” good catch though, I wonder how much the “filament structure” of the universe plays a role in predicting future mergers. Anyways

Also another fun thing, is that the eye galaxy, the one that that has its blue arms stretched apart, actually appeared in interstellar on Murphy Cooper’s notepad… NGC 4438
