Galaxy Zoo Talk
There is a #merger below the central galaxy that looks pretty interesting.
It looks like there is a light source on one side of this galaxy.
overlap or merger?
Would you call the debris on either side of the middle of the disc dust lanes or tidal debris?
#question: galaxy with foreground star or both stars?
#question: stars or a star overlapping a merger?
#question: Is this a star seen through a very diffuse galaxy? It looks like there is a bar feature.
looks like merging galaxies with a star between them, possibly behind them
#overlap by star
#question: Is this a merger of two edge ons? An overlap by a star?
It looks like a spiral galaxy with a ring inside it?
#question: what is going on here? It looks like nuclear fission or cell division, but it is a star (?) or galaxy (?)
#question: are spiral arms making a ring in this case?
#voorwerpje or just colorful?
Another cool overlap or possibly #merger. I guess there is some distortion?
I didn't realize this was a merger. I thought it was a disturbed bar feature in the disturbed spiral. Thanks.
#question: star or galaxy?
I marked this as irregular, but it is probably more accurately #disturbed.
#overlap with star
#overlap and #cluster
#overlap with red star?
As ljadamec said more poetically, the star is causing a disturbance in the spiral galaxy.
candidate for #bulgeless
#stars at the polar positions!
Question: one armed spiral or disturbed elliptical? Possible result of a merger?
appears to be half a red bar on the galaxy. Is that caused by the overlapping star?
faint, #x-shaped #bar
#question: galaxy or star?
doesn't appear for ellipticals
#question: galaxy or star? It's fuzzy, so I classified it as a galaxy. Now this, I would call a dominant bulge, although that question
#question: I thought I saw the beginnings of two arms, but couldn't decide between a spiral or a ring. Which is it?
candidate for #bulgeless?
#question: are the two white spheres at the top of the central galaxy stars or something else?
#question: lenticular or spiral?
not sure if this is a #merger or something else coming off the elliptical galaxy. I forgot to mark #disturbed, which it is.
To me, this looks like it has an "obvious" bulge, but from some of the objects in the table, it may be a candidate for #bulgeless galaxy.
candidate for #bulgeless galaxy?
(still awaiting more info. on that)
bulge has rougher texture than is usually seen
yes, it is irregular. I forgot to mark that.
#overlap or #merger
almost a bird's eye view of a #spiral
Thanks. I saw them on the FAQ post too, but I didn't know if the three colors were always the primary colors.
I think the 2 o'clock object is an #overlap
#question: Could these be asteroids?
marked it as "disturbed." How do I know/tell the difference?
#question: I wasn't sure whether this is a spiral galaxy or a disturbed smooth galaxy. I see that other classifiers have
That answers my question. It looks more like the sun, which is a star; less like a galaxy with a small bulge.
overlap, but it looks like a star not another galaxy?
#overlap and #merger
Although I'm a novice at this, I disagree. From what I've seen on Talk, the smooth (less fuzzy), colored objects are stars.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who perceives a #ring at the center of a #barred #spiral galaxy.
merger or overlap, can't tell which
looks like a figure 8 or #infinity sign
looks like two fried eggs coming together
#merger and #overlap
interesting phenomenon in upper right corner of image
Maybe the yellow area at center is a galaxy, but it's too difficult to see.
itself doesn't make it an artifact, correct---yes or no? If it's fuzzy, is it a galaxy (or nebula)?
Is this a galaxy or an artifact? I have been to the discussion board, galaxy classifications & FAQ pages, but I'm still not sure. The color
I can't tell if this is a bar feature or a disk edge-on.
How can you tell the middle white object is also not a galaxy?
The galaxy in the center is just a #smooth_galaxy but it is in a #cluster with a #bar_galaxy and a #spiral_galaxy
I think it is a #nebula.
features of galaxy obscured or perhaps conferred by #star over the galaxy
if bar, then very faint, but it looks different than a smooth galaxy for some reason
bulge is ovoid, not round
possible beginning of a #bar?
A clear image of a very large #star or artifact right next to galaxy
Edge-on or bar?
Have been to Help, but will go there again.
What does the comment below, "dust" mean? This is not a galaxy?
Is this a "barred" galaxy or is the effect caused by the brightness of the bulge? Based on the examples, I have been saying no bar to these.
Where can I find out more? (In layman's terms. I don't understand what I'm looking at on the Examine feature.)
1/2 How do I know this is a starburst? Is that a star-forming galaxy? I thought it might be a two-armed spiral overlapping an object.
Is a star overlapping the galaxy?
#spiral-galaxy near central obejct
What about the detail in the bulge?
Can edge- on discs be considered barred?
Wow! I tagged this as a star, but am not really sure. Whatever it is, it looks hot!
slight evidence of a bar-or is that the beginning of the arm of a spiral?
seems like a clearer image of the center of the galaxy than most
Two smooth galaxies? Is this a merger?
More than one smooth galaxy?
also looks like one #edge-on
It looks like two galaxies, but they're not close enough to be merging? One has a noticeable bulge; the other does not.
I wish the tutorial (examples) were more in depth. Is the blue object to right a galaxy? I said it was a star.
