Spiral Arm or Tidal Debris

  • hipchem by hipchem

    In looking at this image, there appears to be a hazy spiral. However, images within the haze appear to be other galaxies within the spiral or could they be showing through from behind?

    Interesting SFR in the inner part of the spiral arms. There appears to be no obvious interaction here as all the other galaxies look to be far behind this one. There may be some evidence of tidal debris in bottom RH corner of the galaxy. can any of the science team clarify on the structure?
