Lensed?

  • GoldenRule by GoldenRule

    They both look lensed to me. The bright spots in top right of galaxy? And the three in a row right of center. I read the lensed forum but​ still don't understand how to tell.

    What "both" are you asking about? click "Galaxy Zoo examine" then "SDSS SkyServer" then "navigate" then click on the object. Use object ID for your question or statement.

    Hi GoldenRule

    All the bright spots in this image are foreground stars from our galaxy. And their positions are just a chance alignment. There is no gravitational lensing going on here, sorry.

    Hope this helps and happy hunting ! 😄
