    In the top may be a quasar lens?

    I see two interacting galaxies, and yes, I think the one on the right has a very active nucleus and is probably a quasar, since it has the pink colour of hot hydrogen. But it is not a lens, because a lensed quasar behind it would be farther away, and the colour won't be pink, it will be blue.

    It should be hashtagged, how about #merger and #quasar
