It looks as if this smooth, rounded galaxy has a spike of light running through its centre, like a spindle. Is this an optical illusion? If not, where could this light be coming from? I have seen lots of galaxy pictures, but this is a first for me 😃

i see an edge-on.
Could be a polar ring.
I don't think we can see jets, but I'm not sure
Someone else ?
