    It is merging of 2 objects / galaxies? Can any one clarify?

    The two objects at the top are not merging. One is a star and the bottom one is a galaxy. So no merger possible.

    It does look like a merger, but it's a matter of #perspective

    I agree with @ElisabethB - that is not a merger. The bright blue object at the top is a star (see the diffraction spikes?).

    Yeah, I agree too. I just wanted to start the tag #perspective 😉 .. the star is obviously in the foreground
