the big long thing in the upper center is a disk galaxy that we are seeing edge-on. The galaxies below are merging. the edge-on galaxy is not interacting with the merging ones. In the merger, you can see a red thing sticking out of the one more to the left, this a a galaxy in the background, also edge-on, it is not interacting with any other galaxies as far as we can see

It’s helpful if you can post a link to the viewer at the coordinates you’re looking at (eg using the “Discuss this object” link in the viewer) – otherwise all we’ve got to go on is the cutout you’ve shown.
