hi anyone can explain to me, why this galaxy has a blue ring in its center?
Illustris should offer a reward for actual matches to real target objects.

Hi MonserratMartinez and welcome to GZ,
This is a simulated galaxy from the Illustris data set. And in these images, blue/white features mean star forming areas in the galaxy. So, this is a simulated spiral galaxy with an inner ring. Not that bad a sim actually ! 😄
Hope this helps and happy hunting ! 😄
