Two bright spots

  • Nawedy by Nawedy

    Hi! So I'm new to this (this is only my third photo) and I'm not sure if this galaxy classifies as having Odd features. There seems to be two bright spots in the middle, but then again, maybe they just happen to be on the same line of sight. Should I classify it as a normal round-oval galaxy?

    Hi Nawedy and welcome to Galaxy Zoo !

    The cenrtral brigh spot is the bright nucleus of the galaxy. The one to the left is probably a foreground star.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
