Spiral, Ring, or Both?

  • KyleCourtois by KyleCourtois

    I see a double ring pattern, but i see that others are tagging this as a spiral. Can someone explain?

    Yes, I would just tag it as ringed myself.

    This just means that this is a two-armed spiral (with an inner ring) where the spiral arms fold back to make a ring = a ringed galaxy.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
