Galaxy Zoo Talk

What is this?

  • suelaine by suelaine

    The centred object is an ellipse, but what is the object below and to the left? There seems to be little information in Sktserver. Is it disturbed galaxy?

    #disturbed for me, possibly a #merger, maybe a disk galaxy ('spiral') whose bulge is relatively undisturbed, but whose disk is quite messed up. And where is the perturber? From our perspective, hard to say ...
