Distrubed spiral galaxy

  • martin.hedin by martin.hedin

    1. The color is a bit off, right? The image is very yellow.

    2. Is this a disturbed structure? Has the galaxy encountered something that is outside the image.

    3. Do you see 2 or 3 spiral arms?

    And yes, it looks disturbed and I'd go for two arms. 😄
