Galaxy Zoo Talk

From the prof

    I contacted professor Michael Merrifield from Univ of Nottingham. This is what he had to say...

    It looks to me like a particularly beautiful example of a face-on
    strongly-barred galaxy -- they quite often have rings, associated with
    an orbital resonance, around the end of the bar like that.

    Thanks, professor!

    But how did you classify it originally? 😄
