Cool Barred Spiral
Wow! This is my favorite SB ever! What are the two luminous areas at the tip of each arm? Are these satellite galaxies in a merger or luminous star-forming regions or something else I haven't even thought of...or not connected to the SB at all? What do you think?

The two bright objects are foreground stars from our galaxy. So, not connected to the central galaxy at all. Just a line of sight. Looks pretty amazing ! 😄
