How do you classify this?
So this kind of galaxy appears quite often, yet I don't really know how to classify them. As far as I know they are babygalaxies which didn't form yet, so you can't really say what type of galaxy it is. They are not round, not spiral-shaped, no disks, basically nothing special apart from being nothing specific. So how do you classify them?

Hi JohnnyRevolver and welcome to the Zoo
This is a simulated galaxy from the Illustris dataet. See here : http://blog.galaxyzoo.org/2015/09/21/new-images-for-galaxy-zoo-part-2-illustris/
As for the classification, you could go for : features or disk - not an edge on - no bar - no spiral - no bulge - something odd : irregular or disturbed
Just answer the questions as well as you can. ! 😄
Happy hunting !
