Arms on the Spiral galaxy

  • DuskyStarGayza by DuskyStarGayza

    I am a bit confused with this one, I obviously know it a spiral, but I thought there may have been 3 arms as there looks like there is a small arm tucked in the middle, but not entirely completing the full spiral, but I said three anyway. However when I came on here to ask, I noted that the description of the picture below said it has got only 2. So, am I seeing something that isnt an arm if so what is it??

    Prize winner. I don't think I have ever seen one quite like this. 2 main arms, maybe 2 little ones, and a nuclear ring over a bar.
