It's always weirder than you thought it would be.

I don't think these two are merging but there is no spectrum data for either so hard to tell. There is a blue galaxy in the centre (which is my target) and a green galaxy which overlaps on the bottom.

The first few pix I posted I didn't use the link and therefor had to save them on my computer first... Now I just found one that fits in this topic... I don't know if you can use it, since it is without ref#, but here it is anyway (the way I used to post it again)...

I don't see any clear signs of interaction here...
