Repeating double shapes

  • finthomas by finthomas

    Are the repeated double shapes a glitch or a distortion caused by gravitational lensing? Or possibly just a coincidence?

    Hi finthomas and welcome to the Zoo

    As you can see in the zoomed out (and rotated) image it is a glitch in the image. Almost all the smaller bright objects are doubled. Definitely no lensing here.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
