Galaxy Zoo Talk
This galaxy has a large area of blue around the outer edge #starforming area?
Looks like a #merger as there is a double nucleus. Or is the brighter object a foreground star?
Its just an effect of its brightness on the image sensor.
Two asteroids either side of central galaxy?
Are the two bright objects either side og the central galaxy asteroids?
Ring surrounding denser inner disk?
There is a dim red object towards outer rim of disk which looks too dim to be a foreground star...any ideas?
Approaching merger or overlap?
Debris to the right of main disk. Foreground star on left of image?
#overlap in my opinion
There appear to be two cores to this object. One dominant and the other is faint due to merger?. Any other ideas
#barred with tight spiral or circle?
a number of #starforming clusters in spiral
looks like an #overlap with central circular galaxy and edge on galaxy
Red core with blue outer areas of disk. Is that tidal debris between the two objects? ie merger in progress
The spiral arms look irregular/distorted. There are two nearby companion star clusters
The #spiral arms look irregular with #starforming regions
Is that a small companion cluster of stars? It seems to be at the end of a tight spiral formation
The core of this galaxy seems irregular.
Is the red colour of this galaxy a result of the other bright foreground stars?
#disturbed barred spiral
#blue barred spiral
#cluster rather than merger?
Colourful foreground star at right side
#Overlap? no disturbance and different colours
Is that a smaller #companion galaxy with it?
Companion galaxy? Smaller object does'nt seem bright enough for foreground star
I'm thinking #overlap due to lack of disturbance
Faint red galaxy behind satellite trail.
I would go with overlap due to lack of disturbance.
I would say stars too
I thought this was a star at first but checking Skyserver it is classed as a galaxy. Seems very disturbed with off centre core
Out of focus star? with four points
slightly #irregular #blue galaxy
Tight single spiral or disturbed #ring?
Nice #blue spiral with two #asteroids
Are the red and green pixels due to an #asteroid?
May be stars in the foreground as they are similar intensity to other surrounding stars.
There appear to be two lighter areas near the central area and an area of debris at outer disk. Results of #merger?
Nice #blue spiral galaxy
Are the four smaller objects involved with the large disk?
Quite a #cluster. What is the blue line? Thought the #satellite trails were green
large amount of uv in galaxy with #starforming areas
#irregular clumpy type galaxy with #starforming areas
Tight spiral with #starforming areas
Its a beauty. #starforming areas in the spiral
#merging red galaxies with #asteroid. Maybe another asteroid at top edge above blue star
Hints of a spiral with #starforming areas towards outer disk.
Another galaxy edge on in background
#Planetary-Nebula? Looks like outer debris field. Or just refracted light from a star?
I think it is two stars due to colour difference
Smaller clump of stars at 6'oclock to galaxy
Some sort of linear optical artefact? Not likely to be satellite as it is a Hubble image?
I classified the galaxy at what would be the centre of the image, as there is a cut off area.
Very blue central area with high UV output. #KUG?
Looks fabulous on Skyserver. Nice #dustlane. The best ones on here seem to get chopped in half 😦
No signs of interaction between the two so I think one is in the background. Maybe the redder of the two?
large irregular clump at 11 o'clock to central galaxy looks too fuzzy to be foreground star
#blue with irregular clump at edge of disk.
Looks like the side on galaxy is in the background rather than being a near merger due to lack of disturbance to either galaxy.
Smaller companion galaxy to bottom left?
Small irregular clump just outside galaxy rim at 11 o'clock.
Small bright object to left of galaxy core. Too small for foreground star. Checked FITS data and it does not show up in Light spectra
I think the blue object could be a foreground star from our galaxy
Nearby(?) 'fuzzy' clusters
Off centre core a result of merger or disturbance? #Starforming areas too
Usually the satellite trails go all the way across. Are these slower moving? Looks like 3 are ghost images of the first
its an optical artifact from bright object just out of view
Nice edge on galaxy with blue #starforming areas
#Overlap? with yellower galaxy in background?
Star from our galaxy. Optical artifact
I would say its a star from our galaxy
Two other visible galaxies
looks like the rain got on the lens 😃
First time I've seen an image with an almost black background
Possible #asteroid on far right edge of image?
Looks like a #merger to me
Nice #barred spiral
#cluster of galaxies
#Barred galaxy with #disturbed spiral arms
#barred with #disturbed spiral and #starforming areas
#Colourful mash up
Is this what might be classed as #voorwerpje?
Strange shaped area of #disturbance on outer edge of disk.
Blue foreground star. I'm thinking the paler object on galaxy disk could also be a foreground object.
#Starforming areas in spiral arms. Bright foreground star
#satellite trail but with small #barred galaxy with #ring in background
Small clumps of stars outside main disk.Possible #disturbance. Foreground star and second galaxy bottom left
Odd looking #clusters outside main galaxy disk
Nice edge on galaxy with #dustlane
What a nice star burst optical artifact
Not your usual galaxy zoo picture
Slightly square shaped spirals and secondary galaxy. Smaller galaxy in background or paired to the larger?
Looks like a #cluster of galaxies
Nice colours. The pic on skyserver is even more spectacular
Another galaxy with a clump of stars nearby. No real disturbance for a merger
There is no disturbance for a merger. Is it a small companion galaxy?
Two armed spiral with nearby star cluster
Very nice #barred two armed spiral
There is a smaller #clump of stars outside galaxy disk.
star in our galaxy. Just bright in comparison to background
#merger of 3?
Small clump just outside outer edge of disk.
#merger. seems to be a lot going on. Two bright cores and two dimmer cores or concentration of stars
#clumpy #irregular #blue with nice barred spiral top left
#barred spiral with#starforming areas. Certainly one for the SPECTACULAR collection.
#irregular with #starforming areas
#merger or overlap. Disturbance between the two? or could be just the tidal effect from the spiral arms of the barred galaxy?
Not sure about this one. It seems to be glowing with #starforming areas within.
#side_on disk with a lot of stars in the polar regions/large bulge?
There are strange whiter lines or smudges near to galaxy core. What are they?
Nice #Barred spiral. Full image on SS
There appears to be a darker area radiating out from core towards outer disk (dust?) The two bright areas on disk may be foreground stars.
Foreground stars from our galaxy
Looks fairly #red with a slightly deformed core
Looks #merger to me too. wonder what the big object to top right corner is?
#reddish looking galaxy. #asteroid streak just above it?...looks very fast moving
looks to be some #disruption to disk of central galaxy with separate clump
#merger of 2 galaxies. blue foreground star
red foreground star. Though it must be fairly dim to not obscure the galaxy.
#blue #barred #spiral
looks like debris around the central galaxy disk.#G-pair or #merger?
#merger? the disk seems distorted around the blue object. Or is blue object a foreground star?
#blue clump in polar region of side on galaxy. Any ideas?
Nice looking #ring galaxy
This is worth looking at again...and again
nice galaxy #cluster
Nice single spiral with #starforming areas. Very bright core
A galaxy at centre with the red object being a star
Smaller cluster at SE of main galaxy.Examining FITS data the light from clump looks to be of similar intensity to the galaxy. any ideas?
Eliptical galaxy with foreground stars for me.
Or a #barred spiral perhaps. The faint outer spirals do not connect
green dot above core seems to be an optical artifact.
#starforming areas too. Nice one
It is an optical artifact. Its because the star is much closer than the background galaxy and 'burns out'
From the disturbance I would say that its the result of a #merger
Nice #barred #ring with faint outer disk.Other galaxies in background
small bright spot in disk just left of galaxy core.
The disk has a #blue colouring. Possibly #starforming
Looks like a good #cluster
fuzzy looking cluster of stars(?) to bottom left. Foreground, background or along side?
better than finding out you mother is an alien 😉
hint of a #dustlane across core I think
Is this what might be classed as a #g-pair?
The spiral arms look slightly distorted
Not quite edge on. Nice
There is an irregularity to the bottom of outer disk. Any ideas?
Strange optical effect on outer part of disk? looks like a curled up worm (oh no...perhaps there is a nearby wormhole...sorry)
I dont think so. Its shows up well in green and red wavelengths on the FITS data.
May be a foreground star from our galaxy. When examined on Skyserver the red object seems elongated.
#tidal effect on outer disk
Now thats what I call an optical artifact.
its a toss up whether this is a #bar or loose spiral. What relationship does central galaxy have with blue cluster above it?
#dustlane, #disturbed, #merger with smaller object? or #gpair
#asteroid at top
I would go with merging too
#bar and spiral. I dont think merger as blue spot may be foreground star and there is no disruption.
#blue. Lots of uv.
#bar #ring and #disturbed spiral. The arms are very #blue
its a star from our galaxy. The spikes are optical artifacts
Spiral with inner #ring
Bit of a #cluster
Brighter area at edge of disk.
There is a large blue area above core. Lots of uv on FITS data. KUG or AGN?
blue object under disk. Is it background? Difficult to tell
another interesting little bright spot just outside galaxy core.
Nice double spiral with other background galaxies
#merger of the two central galaxies? Several other galaxies in view
#disturbed spiral with #starforming areas. looks like several background galaxies too
Nice spiral with #starforming areas
looks like a small clump rather than a line. faint foreground star?
Lovely #barred galaxy with faint outer #ring
Nice #barred #ring
#blue. #Disturbed spiral arm
#red. No visible core
Looks like faint clumps leading off in a spiral line. Or very dim foreground stars?
Shaped a bit like a trilobite. #Disturbance of the lower outer disk
#irragular or #disturbed #red
Lots of UV from core. Is the reddish colour caused by dust?
I thought these were stars
#merger and part of #cluster?
This is a real oddity. Defies explanation.
nice loose spiral
The bar across this galaxy looks off centre and slight distortion in outer disk at 10 o'clock
I would say so
#disturbed or #irregular?
#blue with hint of a spiral.
#dustlane around edge of disk?
I just knew you would say that...again ha. I have a collection now with the same sort of artefact. It only happens occasionally.
Small bright spot next to galaxy core. Too small and dim for foreground star methinks.
#starforming areas in spirals.
#bar with #starforming areas in #disturbed spirals
It seems more of a #bar to me. The green dots may be an optical artefact as they do not show up on the FITS data as sources of light
#dustlane I think. Goes across core and darker area at top of disk.
That is a foreground star
I'd say a #massive_merger
#merger I think due to disturbance of central galaxy
I tend to think the red dot is a foreground star
core looks slightly irregular
Really nice #merger
#merger or #overlap ?
Small clump to right could be with this galaxy or in the background?
Yes I meant the small galaxy at 12 o/c. I thought it was too dim for a star
Looks like a #double_core...or #merger in progress?
Very bright core #AGN? Inner and outer #ring. Masses of uv from core and inner ring
#dustlane too. Nice.
#blue areas #bar and #disturbed spiral arms
#cluster of galaxies. Small clump outside main disk area.
small clump just outside main disk.
Not sure what the reddish object is. Its too faint for a foreground star I think.
#merger or #overlap. Not much disruption
#bar and #ring. (more noticeable when image inverted)
#dustlane and #starforming areas. Nice
satellite track. Goes right across the skyserver image
#starforming areas in lower spiral arm. Nice
I think that the blue object just to left of disk may be foreground star. The disk looks undisturbed though the core looks off centre.
Looks like a foreground star to me
The spirals seem to be disturbed. Plenty of #starforming areas. #blue
Is this a row of stars? where the light is refracted through dust. They appear as points of light when viewed on FITS data.
I would say just stars
small #clump on edge of disk
#blue #irregular #starforming
#merger and a smiley
seems to be a #cluster
#starforming areas in spirals
Nice #bar #spiral
#merger? There is a tiny light spot above core of central galaxy
seen them quite a lot with these overexposed stars. Some sort of lens aberation perhaps
The off centre spot shows on the UV in FITS data. If it was a distant galaxy behind this one I would have thought it would not be visible.
There are some small clusters of stars outside the main disk area
Maybe a foreground star. There is some #disturbance to the disk though.
#starforming areas. Nice image. Is the line under the disk a distant galaxy or clump on an opposite plane to the main body of the galaxy?
Pity its an incomplete image. would have been a beauty. #starforming areas
The core of the galaxy looks oddly shaped and difference in colour. weak foreground star? or #merger? Disk looks #disturbed too
Is it a merger? I see some #disturbance to the lower spiral arm but no other galaxy core.
small concentrated clump near outer rim of disk
#red #bar and loose spiral
#dustlane? or part of a #ring system
Bad quality picture I think
I think the irregularity in the disk may be the end of a spiral. The bright areas outside disk may be foreground stars.
For me it is a galaxy. There are separate areas of uv and other wavelengths when examining the FITS data
side on galaxy in the background
Beautiful #ring formation
Its an optical artefact from a nearby star. nice colours
#cluster? There is not much disturbance for a merger.
Its a satellite trail. Because they are fast moving objects relative to the background they show as a coloured streak
Lovely image on #skyserver though. http://skyserver.sdss3.org/dr8/en/tools/chart/chart.asp?ra=141.08184134&dec=34.52469094
Pity only half the image. Nice #ring formations
Is this a #merger? The area of the disk near the clump looks #disturbed
Is this a #KUG? very high UV. What is the reason for the central area showing the colours of the spectrum?
foreground star nearly hides the more distant galaxy
I'm thinking the lighter blue area on the outer disk is a foreground star
looks like a good #cluster of galaxies
small clumps around this galaxy following a merger?
two clumps of stars either side of disk at 10 and 5 o'clock
#asteroid below disk?
#disturbed area at bottom of disk.Red foreground star?
clump of stars outside main disk. #disturbed?
#starforming areas. High uv signature
small blue area at the top of disk shows high uv. Foreground star??
#clump of stars at 9 o'clock. Is that an #asteroid at top due to colours?
#edge_on? lot of blue...#starforming?
smaller cluster of stars outside main galaxy disk
#ring with fainter spiral
I think the blue spot below core may be a foreground star
possibly star from our galaxy in the foreground
#bar too? Shows up nicely in UV...#starforming areas in spiral arms
Is that a red shifted galaxy in background?
two foreground stars above and below core of galaxy
small clump outside disk @ 8 o'clock
areas of intense blue light throughout. Area bottom right of disk has high UV intensity. #starforming?
The central area looks elongated. The disk doesn't look disturbed so does that rule out a merger?
there is an area of brighter intensity from centre to rim (one side only)and small clumps/disturbance around galaxy
#merger about to happen? Where is the information to measure their relative distances from each other? (z figure?)
four small clumps surrounding galaxy with foreground star
possible galaxy #merger with foreground star.
Any ideas what the pink area in the rim could be?
Not sure what the first post said but there are small clumps on both sides of the galaxy at NW and SE
if you look at image on raw FITS data there is an absence of light from all wavelengths along that squiggle.(fluff on the lens ha)
High uv output throughout galaxy. #starforming areas?
#cluster of galaxies for me too
galaxy with blue foreground star
#merger of two galaxies. The blue cloud has high uv and looks in foreground. There is also a small patch of blue cloud on lower outer rim
The clump has a similar amount of uv light as he galaxy outer rim if that means anything
small clump just outside galaxy rim
slightly irregular #bar and #spiral
two galaxies of similar size in the same vicinity?
Some small clumps in the area around the galaxy. Galaxy seems to have high uv output
Three similar coloured clumps off the main disk. #disturbed?
galaxy with foreground star. Very colourful
central object between the two reds has been listed as a galaxy. I thought it was a star. Ho hum
Small clump just outside disk
#merger? Are there two asteroids in the picture?
Another galaxy showing at bottom left. Not sure of distance from central object
Is one of them a foreground star?
Are the blobs to the left fuzzy galaxies in the background?
#bar. High uv in central galaxy.
#merger? with object to right of lower spiral arm
#edge_on and #spiral in same view
clump of stars detached from the main body of the galaxy. High uv from main part of galaxy
There is a line of #disturbance from the outer disk towards the blue object (the blue object is a foreground star though I think)
Is this #irregular as the core is not at the centre?
#irregular area at rim of disk
Slightly irregular spiral
The #irregular area top right on rim of disk has high uv output and the bright spot near centre is high gamma output?
you can use the slider on the graph to chance the intensity of image
leave it a few second before hitting the U tab. The result seems to have changed since I first went there...how odd
click 'Galaxy zoo examine' under the picture. Open Fits data tab and click on U tab.
looks like a number of #starforming areas too. Lovely
What has caused this effect? some sort of colour shift going on
There is a concentration of stars from the centre of the galaxy to the outer rim in a straight line.(shows brightly in the U of FITS data)
#merger or #disturbed?
There is a brighter spot just above centre which also shows up in other wavelengths
galaxy zoo examine is just below the picture above
Some sort of disturbance at bottom right of galaxy? shows up well on uv
Is this a #KUG ?
The object above the plane of the side on galaxy is a bright uv source too
I go onto the RAW FITS DATA on the 'examine' page and it shows the light wavelengths...or have I got it wrong
Nice #edge_on galaxy. Is that a disturbance or a galaxy behind. Some sort of lensing effect?
if you go to 'examine ' it shows up on the uv so its not just a duff pixel in the picture.
#KUG ? (Kiso survey for Ultraviolet excess galaxies)
disturbed #bar and spiral
There is a brighter light in the spiral which shows on the uv spectrum. Any ideas? looks very similar object to OBJECT AGZ0002omf
Nice #bar and two #spiral_arms
The disturbed area on the top outer rim seems to have uv signature. #starforming area?
#merger? The central galaxy looks a little #disturbed
clumps of debris 7-8 o'clock from main disk?
Galaxy with #foreground_stars in my opinion
The orange object may be a foreground star. Don't know what the purple cloud is though.
#cluster maybe. The main #spiral galaxy looks undisturbed. or debris following a merger?
I'd go with star too
Is it a galaxy with brighter foreground star?
There is certainly some sort of disturbance going on. Is the shape mirrored further right?
There appear to be small patches of #debris between the two
I thought these were all stars within our galaxy
There is a #bright_object to right of central mass. looks too small to be a foreground star
There is a slightly brighter area in the top right of central object
Merger of three? Or is the one to the right an overlap? or foreground star?
#merger or #overlap ? I'm tending towards overlap as there is no distortion of either galaxies.
#merging galaxies?...why the colour difference? Is it an optical effect from the bright star to the left of image?
Is this just a star viewed through dust/debris? as it seems to extend from top left of image
Is this a #merger or #overlap? I cant see any interaction or distortion
Bluish #starforming areas within disk
Looks like it to me
There is a feint figure of 8 line around this galaxy. Any explanation? Residue after a #merger perhaps?
I suggest these are stars from our galaxy
#bar as well
#irregular or #disturbed? with #starforming areas
#cluster or #irregular? I cannot tell with the poor picture quality
I consider the line from the bright blue object is an optical flare effect. Agree?
I was thinking this was an #overlap because the lighter object near the central appears to have a spiral
What is the bright area on the rim of the disk?
Is this an elliptical galaxy at centre with plenty of foreground stars?
Nice edge on galaxy with others in view
What is the yellow object/ A foreground star?
debris from two #merging galaxies? The two seem to have a line connecting them
Is this a jet from an #irregular galaxy?
yes thanks. Is it a KUG because of the colours?
What is a KUG?
I would not have classified this as irregular. I thought it was a disk viewed at an angle
What are the darker areas at 12 and 2 o'clock of central object?
Bright band of #starforming area in spiral pattern?
Is this a view of a clump of galaxies or group of stars?
#star in foreground overlapping disk
Brown object in disk. Is it a foreground object/dim star?
#star in foreground
There appears to be a ring to the top right of central object. Is this an #overlap ?
#starforming regions around the outer edges. Nice
When viewed inverted I can make out a feint #bar and #circle formation. Agree?
This looks like a star in the foreground partially obscuring the object behind.
Is the object to bottom right of central galaxy a closer foreground star?
Are the brighter lines around the central objects #starforming regions?
#merger or #overlap ? I used to be indecisive....but now I'm in two minds about it 😃
Is this a single spiral arm viewed from the side? The bluer area being the centre? Or something else?
Small formation detached from top left of object.
area of #brightness within disk a distance from centre
Interesting. #irregular, #merger, #bright object
Its difficult to tell if this is a #cluster of #merging galaxies
I would tend to think the star is a closer object. Dont know about the brown smudge
#overlap or #merger? Would I be right in thinking its an overlap due to the difference in colours of the two objects?
Is the object on the far left of the image an #AGN with jets from its centre?
The detail is'nt good but possible #merger ?
Looking at it again I tend to agree due to the lack of distortion.
There is a feint darker line through/around the centre. Any ideas?
What is the cause of the redder area of this object?
What could be the cause of the line of brightness appearing to connect to outer rim of object?
There appear to be two bright objects towards the bottom left edge of the object
merger? There appear to be two brighter areas at the centre of the object
disturbed or irregular?
Am I correct in thinking that this is a merger where the galaxies have passed through each other and disrupted shapes of both?
There appears to be a trail of stars from the top outer edge towards top right of image
I considered this a merger as there is a feint line of stars between the two and both seem to be on the same plane.Any thoughts?
Is this a cluster of smooth galaxies, or a group of poor resolution stars.
What would these objects be classified as?
What is this object?
What is the blue line through image?
Is there a hint of a bar from the centre at 11 o'clock?
Is the area of brightness bottom right,a part of the disk or separate object?
What is the bluer object? Something closer to the camera?
There appear to be brighter clumps within an irregular shaped disk.
The slight area of brightness above the core could it be an object nearer to camera?Or object behind viewed through the disk?
Looks like a smiley face on the blue object
There is an upwards bar which does not appear to connect to the centre of the galaxy
I notice that there is a bright feature just to the right of the centre of this galaxy. Could this be a star going nova?
