    #IC 311 aka #UGC 2625, possible #sombrero -esque system, or an #elliptical with #doubledust and #dustlanes. Possibly #lenticular but (1/2)

    this galaxy has a huge, extensive halo like an elliptical but references mention it might be like the sombrero. #peculiar #dusty #dust

    The spherical galaxies you mention are foreground stars from our galaxy. But I see an edgeon at 15:00 which is a nice #overlap 😃

    Sorry, but in the SDSS SkyServer are classified that way

    If you use the 'navigate' button in SDSS Skyserver, you'll see that the two objects mentioned are labelled 'star'.

    Your eyes are smarter than SDSS software. The stars classified as galaxy because the software is confused by the background galaxy colour.

    The term overlap is used for galaxy-galaxy overlap, which has useful scientific uses.

    Too many galaxies have overlapping stars, so labelling them would dilute the galaxy-galaxy overlap, which is what we are looking for.

    Blood coloured dust, pretty. Another fainter red dust lane at a slight angle to the other.
