Looks similar to the Galaxy zoo classification "green peas".

Those are small generally near round, and generally green due to the redshift of the predominantly blue light.

Nothing in the article about the proposed diameter of the system but the age was quoted. Could be anything from dwarf to giant elliptical in construction @ the time.

Have a nice day: Ag
