    Hi cerovalent1 and welcome to the Zoo

    It's a galaxy that got zoomed in too much.You can tag these with #imagesizewrong, that way they get removed from the database.

    Here's the full color image of the galaxy (image rotated)

    enter image description here

    Happy hunting ! 😄

    Thank you for the beautiful picture and sorry for the long response time. My wife and I decided to move cross country and this is my first time logging on in three months. How did you find out that this was a zoomed in picture?

    I clicked on 'Galaxy Zoo examine' and then on 'View in Skyserver'. See this excellent thread : #1 How do I : Find out more information about the galaxy I have classified?

    Hope the move went okay and you are settling in ! 😄
