This transformer galaxy

  • ratprincess by ratprincess

    This must be the first galaxy I classified as irregular on top of looking spiral-ish. Actually, it looks almost like the galaxy has two arms and two short legs--reminding me of the transformers.

    From this image, I could see the dust lane on the left, which possibly is an indication that the gas and dust in the area is more resistant to be eaten away. Yet, in the other sources, like DR9, it looks like a xmas gift wrapped with green and purple stripes.

    Relooking at this image, I am not quite sure whether there is anything spiraling at all.

    Any ideas?
