    This must be a very fat elliptical.

    I am somewhat sceptical #no_lens . If we look at the DR8 image, we can see a similar 'arc' extending in the opposite direction. #curious.

    There is discolouration in the dr8 image, where we would expect to see the counter image...

    I am still curious...

    That's a nice arc! I like the curvature, but I can't see a counter-image. It could be a "naked cusp" merging triplet, but its quite far out.

    In the SDSS image, I don't see any arc at all: http://skyserver.sdss3.org/dr8/en/tools/chart/chart.asp?ra=183.03690026&dec=13.79253341

    So I guess it's a singly-imaged "arclet" of a high z dusty galaxy, visible only in the IR (kind of like the SW VICS82 candidates' sources)
