Galaxy Zoo Talk
SSDS DR9 Navigate recenters on the brighter object. The center of the image presented is behind and to the right. This is confusing.
It would be nice to be able to examine before making a classification...
I'd say #merging due to the asymmetrical tails.
Even cooler is the galaxy above and to the left in expanded view.
Looks like two tightly wound low energy spirals.
Erroneously classified this as a globular galaxy; it's a star 😦 You can't examine until after you have committed!
First look I thought maybe a merger; closer look I think there is a #dustlane
I think it's only two spiral arms with lots of tidal debris.
Not trained in Illustris. Interesting. They call it a halo.
Star forming #ring or #arc. Cool
I meant that using the tools in the SDSS SkyServer makes it possible to see what you are looking at and facilitates classification.
SSDS viewer points to the subject. Cross hairs would be helpful. Being able to use the viewer prior to making a classification would help.
Star birthing arc on the perimeter of an amorphous globular galaxy. That's cool.
Would this #agn / #quasar jet be pointing directly at us or away from us?
Well now that is a ball with a highlight. Must be a long ways away.
Is this an edge on view of a lenticular?
Now how does the dust lane form like that???
Good example of why a cross-hair should be automatically inserted in every photo. The subject is a vague blue smudge behind the big spiral.
Odd. I wish for 3D imaging of this galaxy. Is it horseshoe shaped? What is the diffuse lenticular? A separate entity or offshoot?
The foreground SDSS J121950.59+293652.9 is more fun to look at than the subject.
It looks like there are two #diametrically_opposed bars and a ring or arcs.
Hit the link to "Galaxy Zoo examine" and look at the cross hairs. Then click the "navigate" link to zoom or check other objects.
The actual object that is the subject in this photo is object id# 1237672005834705658. It is behind the obvious galaxy in the middle.
A star in front of a globular galaxy.
Looking/exploring in SSDS/DR8 this screen is full of objects, some of which are identified as stars and others as galaxies.
I look this up on SSDS and it says it is a galaxy, objID 1237658165846213891. I put in the RA/DEC just in case i had the wrong picture. ???
Concentric #ring (s) neato
Hard to tell which object is the subject prior to classifying. I'd like to navigate with sky server before expressing an opinion.
The subject galaxy is to the right, object on the left is a star. Is the dust over the star, light bent around it from the galaxy?
Interesting how the dust lane is slightly off the ecliptic.
Scattered vague spirals.
SDSS J234842.40+573804.2 is identified as a galaxy; adjacent SDSS J234842.53+573800.1 is identified as a star. Look the same to me.
#agn looks a lot like some of the stars that come up for classification.
Looks like a broad swipe of stars is missing.
The symmetry of this #merger is too cool.
I see a jet or more likely a photo artifact.
Looks like a one arm loose spiral with lots of star forming and dust.
weak nucleus, loose arms, lots of #dust
You want me to go back out and take another picture?
#lenticular with a nuclear #lens
#merger ; different spectra
If it's a star, why do NED and SSDS both identify it as a galaxy?
The primary object looks like it may be a complete #merger.
I think this galaxy has an active galaxy nucleus, #AGN, rather than an overlap foreground star.
The purple dot between the stars is the galaxy. Doesn't look like much, but it's there 😃
Looks like just one spiral arm.
I want a 3D map of the universe. I think I'll call it the Sky.
This and the three nearby objects are identified as galaxies; almost all others in this area as stars. I see no difference visually.
I wonder how long it will take to collapse into a ball. Almost there now!
It looks like ejecta.
Looks like a merger; second galaxy may be more distant; I don't know if this software will allow me to distinguish distance.
Weak, lacking cohesion.
Looks more like part of the spiral arm being orphaned off.
Interesting that it has a bar and 3 spiral arms. That suggests a disturbance in the force.
Lots of dust
Merger or disturbed; star forming; busy...
Looks like a nearly complete merger.
How many stars are being formed in a typical starforming district?
What's odd is getting a good photo.
Seems to be too sparse for three galaxy merger. Three nuclei?
One oddball barred in a neighborhood of sphericals.
Do merging galaxies become one or do they pass on after some interaction
Peacock ring lens cool
Is the bar irregular or just partially obscured with dust?
nice clear photo / star forming spiral / edge on
The galaxy is that gray dot between the bicolored stars. It looks like a round one to me.
To me it looks like two loose spiral arms and two blue star forming regions.
How many galaxies is in this neighborhood? 2, 3 or 4?
It looks more like a disturbance than an arm, based on relative position of the "tail" to the bar.
Well I see a spiral and lens but not sure about the bar.
Lacy edge hot core odd
I think it is a merger based on this visual.
The subject galaxy is very vague and obscured by the optical "star" around the star.
Not easy to distinguish which is the subject without further examination
Irregular star forming galaxy.
Very well defined arms.
Very nice dust lanes. I don't see spiral arrangement of stars. Looks lenticular to me.
I think the yellow oval is the subject. interacting with the blue irregular based on scatter of blue in the direction of the yellow oval.
awesome in #explore
many armed, #starforming
looks like a #merger to me
Nice...looks like the spirals are collapsing into a nuclear lens...but then I'm a rookie and don't really know...but it is nice.
looks like two perpendicular bisecting bars to me, loose spirals off of the ends of the dominant bar.
Looks like an artifact on my kindle but this device is unable to examine/explore/download a better image. Rats.
nice 2 arm #spiral
#bar and 2 #spiral arms
I don't know if this is #merging or #starforming
tight 1 arm spiral
very different on skyserver explore...hard to believe it is the same galaxy
Cool edge view. #lenticular ?
a lot of tight arms
1 arm spiral with an arc?
another hot #green_pea
#green_pea in explore; #agn or something is really hot in there
3 arm Spiral
quite the lopsided bright #bulge
#bar #spiral #lens #ring pretty nice galaxy
Looks like a whirlpool. 1 arm spiral.
That's a lot of galaxies.
Looks more like part of one arm defected to be a dwarf than a merger.
A large, bright nucleus seems common in lenticulars. A conjecture: this merging looks like it will result in a larger stable lenticular.
I second Isadora
Smiley face. #arc #merger
#lenticular #bar #spiral . . . All in one?
Looks like a near miss to me.
The square nucleus and weak spirals are odd. #disturbed by something.
The merger seems to be resulting in some joint spiraling but I don't think the galaxy is spiraling on it's own axis - yet.
it looks like one tight arm going round and round.
There are other similarly colored, round dense galaxies nearby.
#green_pea galaxy, must be a really dense neighborhood inside this galaxy.
I initially took the blue object beside the subject to be a star but it is surrounded with dots as if it were an #agn galaxy.
I am the eye in the sky, looking at you, I can read your mind. #lens #ring
I have this thing for a nice #dustlane
And not much energy in the spiral. Gonna be a dwarf #irregular before long.
Looks like one side of this galaxy is detecting.
The amount of energy needed to spin this thing up is really hard to conceive.
That's a lot of dust.
I think this is a Klingon battle cruiser with faulty cloaking.
I see #ring #bar #agn. Cool how the bar expands as it touches the ring.
Like peas in a pod.
Is there a minimum number of stars in a galaxy? A total mass under which there is insufficient gravity to be a coherent entity?
One tight arm and one loose. Must have been some influence.
Are we supposed to identify nuclear or gravitational lenses? I don't think I've come across anything looking like a gravitational lens.
A straight line with no stars (empty space) from just outside the nucleus toward 10 o'clock when viewed with color inverted
If you invert this and magnify, this galaxy looks like the ZigZag man.
I wonder how many stars are separated by less than a light year in one of these dense galaxies. It would make interstellar travel inviting.
I also think it looks like a tight one arm spiral; don't see the merger. Mostly it looks like a Danish roll.
The angular formation of the spiral arms is interesting.
The most #boxy nuclear bulge that I have seen.
This guy appears to have lost momentum. One spiral arm is drifting off and the other is loosing cohesiveness.
Looks like a side view of a spiral behind a translucent cigar galaxy.
I see a bar, loose spiral and stars in the making... lots of activity.
Refusing to #merge
Rectangular-that is odd.
Pack 'o pachyderms.
Tight star nursery
Too cool. Many loose spirals. Bar. Ring.
I don't think that nucleus is being energy wise. The green cops should shut it down. Must be burning up stars right and left.
Nice #dustring ... what's a colition?
Barrier reef looking lens
There's a faint line of red stuff on the picture. Or this is #disturbed
Interesting red nucleus.
Nice #dustlane in this photo
What are the odds that I see the same galaxy again?
How many galaxies superimposed is this, four?
#ring #lens se no?
It would be nice to be able to use the "examine" tool prior to finishing a classification. It is not available until you have committed.
How common is a #dustlane ? Is this represented here?
Inverted image looks like a bar and two tight spiral arms. This image looks like a lens and maybe a ring.
The offset nucleus on the side view spiral gives the impression of disturbance unless it is a one arm spiral.
My initial impression is no connection between these two.
Asymmetric. More resolution would be nice.
Simple and elegant.
The SSDS DR8 photo (inverted view) shows a different story, looking like a 1 arm spiral.
#Disturbed big time. Skid marks in the sky.
That vertical extrusion looks like an unrelated dwarf to me. More distant. Not all SkyServer functions are available on my kindlemini-frame.
Offcenter dot looks like it may be in the line-of-sight yet not the same distance. I see no disturbance in the subject pattern.
Something going on
That is one dense core
Glad my galaxy isn't so nondescript
The disturbed arm is the starforming arm
Busy nursery. Pretty.
Return of the lime fruit loop.
Line of stars to lower left and corresponding shadow to upper right.
Lime fruit loop at 1:00
This #dwarf looks like a mayfly
Interesting how the subject shows the same optical artifacts. I don't notice the dimmer objects displaying this.
Is this a #bar or a #lens ?
This spotted green pea doesn't look like a galaxy.
Come here you...#merger
Looks like a edge view of a single arm spiral.
#dwarf tagging needed?
The secondary bulge is interesting to me too. It seems like the dissrupted the area around is recent.
Nice to see a clear picture.
Is that a #dustlane on the left side or photo flaw
That core is getting ahead of its ring.
This galaxy concept is humbling.
Looks like a really loose spiral imho
#bar #ring #inspiring
Escaping stars in a linear pattern
Looks like something spewed off upper left
#quintuplets with a dominant tadpole is what it looks like to this newbie
Birthing on the top maybe?
That's what I was wondering Demetrios.od
Is this a body core?
Pretty pink. #AGN ?
This looks like twin single arm spirals merging. Or something.
Its not the subject but that's one crazy arc nearby.
Newbie question: #AGN?
Bottom half red, anyway
This photo looks nothing like the sky server photo. There's nothing in the middle of this picture.
It looks like a star occluding.
Lonely blue guy.
Well, it has a little tail; is that odd?
Is this a ring?
Nesting single arm spirals?
Pretty well spread out
Ejection and split center. Exciting in a long time frame.
Secondary center along one spiral arm.
