Cloud like galaxies

  • suelaine by suelaine

    I have come across a number of these vague cloud like galaxies. Could someone tell me what they are, please

    Hi suelaine,

    If you see UKIDSS underneath the image, it means that they are images in the infrared. Some faint galaxies look even fainter in the infrared, hence the fuzzy smudges.
