Classifying Merger

  • ksrivatsan by ksrivatsan

    There are two galaxies in the center of this image: how do I classify it? As one galaxy or two?
    By the way, there should be an "irregular" option for galaxies that just don't fit (eg the "spider").

    Hi ksrivatsan and welcome to the Zoo

    Always classify the object in the center of the image. But in this case you can indicate merger by clicking yes to the "Anything odd ? " question.

    There is also an option for irregular there.

    Not sure what you mean by "spider" though ?

    Happy hunting ! 😄
