The same galaxy?

  • Kwith by Kwith

    Could this be an example of gravitational lensing that is causing the same galaxy to appear multiple times? The three look almost identical.

    And that is just an indication that it is not gravitational lensing. The lensed image always has a different color vis-a-vis the lensing galaxy. In this case i see 3 ellipticals, merging.
