    Not a gravitational lens but a galaxy. The three-coloured feature above is an asteroid.

    Ok I understand what the asteroid
    I mean
    in the disk of the galaxy
    appears
    a pattern of concentric waves
    emerging from the core
    as if that galaxy
    is vibrating

    The lines are artifacts of the clean up process. Most arcs are bright blue.
