definite overlap, by a billion light years... your challenge
by Budgieye moderator
Yes, agree, this is an overlap. The galaxy behind is considerable more red than the target galaxy.
Just by looking, I estimate that the z of the target galaxy is about 0.2 and the further galaxy is 0.4
and the distance between the two is about two billion light years. In comparison, the Andromeda Galaxy is about 0.002 billion light years away.
0.1 to 0.2 is approximately a billion light-years, same with 0.2 to 0.3 etc.

I looked up the numbers anyway,
Photoz = 0.136

Photoz = 0.354

How far apart are the two galaxies?You can do it for yourself\
http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=cosmological+redshift , then click on Formula , and input the photoz
target galaxy is z = 0.136 is 1.82 billion light-years away
red overlapped galaxy is 0.354 is 4.53 billion light-years away
The two galaxies are 2.71 billion light-years apart. Oh well, I was sort of close.
More fun with numbers! 😃 7.3 Measure distance, size http://talk.galaxyzoo.org/#/boards/BGZ0000001/discussions/DGZ0000wrb?page=7&comment_id=53d8bb6c0d43f776b00010af
