Galaxy Zoo Talk

Galaxy from DECaLS - is this a normal formation - just a ring?

    How do these galaxies form I wonder? Do they begin differently from spiral galaxies for example? Thoughts welcome!

    Hi jonbark and welcome to the Zoo

    This is probably just a two-armed spiral galaxy, where the two arms fold back to make a ring. Gorgeous barred, ringed spiral galaxy with a big bulge.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
