How to classify this?

  • Effixel by Effixel

    Hi all!

    So I've started classifying galaxies a couple of days ago. I've just had to classify this one today. It is obvious to me that it is a spiral seen at like 45°, but I cannot count the arms. So I said that I coulldn't see any spiral pattern, as I cannot say later how many arms there are. Is this right?

    Hi Effixel and welcome to the Zoo

    Just give it your best guess ! Here I would go for two spiral arms (but that is just me !) . Lots of other people will get this same image to classify, so just give it your best shot !

    Happy hunting and thank you for participating !
