Galaxy Zoo Talk
Unusual to see the close proximity of the two spirals to one another. So much of the visible mass of this galaxy is offset to the left.
Note the smaller bluish ring in the lower third of the galaxy image.
Interesting string of bluish objections, #new-star-formation?, across the lower half of the galaxy.
Intriguing bit of density at the far right edge.
Although I'm unsure if the structure is behind the main body of the galaxy, there is an interesting density at the far left edge.
Looks like a 50,000 light year barefoot print!
Note the interior ring. Resembles a #planetary-nebula-typestructure.
Lovely external ring well outside the proper boundary.
Main galactic body is almost entirely occluded by the #cloud-like-gases.
Almost appears to be a #three-galaxy-merger. There's a lot going on in this image.
The off-colored arm across the top right quadrant of this galaxy is remarkable!
I wish I better understood the #cloud-like-structure that creates the exterior ring around the galaxy.
Appears to be predominantly condensed gas in composition.
These gaseous fields seem to exist in tiered layers above the galactic core. They appear to be a part of the galaxy, but still overlap it.
These #cloud-like-structures appear to be forming a heart shape at the periphery. I would love to understand this process! Anyone? Anyone?
Lots of compressed gases creating #cloud-like-structures at peripheries.
Interesting color contrasts - orange center and gray/white tightly-packed arms.
Five interesting small orange structures surrounding the top of this galaxy.
This is clearly an edge-on disk. I hit the wrong Damned button when I was classifying. Sorry about that!
Again with the peripheral #cloud-like-structures.
#cloud-like-structure creates a ring of (I'm guessing) compressed hot gases. Possibly from a dying star? Haven't seen these before!
There appears to be #cloud-like-structures formed around the peripheries. I'm guessing very compressed dust and/or gas.
I can't account for the #cloud-like-structures in the peripheries. #verystrange.
The ring resembles a shock front similar to a planetary nebula.
3 interesting "spikes" extending out from the core to the1, 3, and 4:00 positions. The spikes terminate at blue areas of new star formation
The blue object at the 8:00 position relative to the spiral galaxy is of interest.
Strangest damned thing I've seen so far. Looks like a talking skull with bright eyes. What am I seeing here? Anyone?
One of the clearest examples of spirals merging that I've seen. Remarkable image!!
This almost appears to be a gaseous cloud, not a galaxy.
I classified the central object but not as a star. The larger structure appears to be merging galaxies - perhaps a spiral and elliptical.
Interested also in the green material that pervades the interior. Seems more gaseous than solid.
It seems that the two faint spiral arms attach to the ring at the 3 & 9 o'clock positions. I don't understand the disconnection from core.
This neck of th universe is going to be busy soon.
Remarkable #tidal tail being produced during this #merger.
#planetary-nebula at the core?
Remarkable amount of #new-star-formation occurring throughout this galaxy. Very busy place!
The proximal #blue-shifting and distal #red-shifting seems to indicate rotation.
#Edge-on Spiral with #dust-lane feature. Arms extend beyond the image and are obscured by the thick dust.
Two #spirals locked together in mid-merger.
Three spirals gravitationally bound.
Intense #newstarformation occurring close to the core, not peripherally as might be expected. Creates a clumpy look in the interior.
Very active #newstarformation
Strong interaction with galaxy at the 12;00 position relative to the classified galaxy.
Can't explain the green gaseous glowing objects that appear around the galaxy. Seems to be disconnected and random in relation to th galaxy
Very sparsely populated spiral. Darn few stars for such an impressive galaxy!
Impressive #barred center
Possible interaction with the galaxy above.
Appears to be one very large spiral arm with significant #new-star-formation at the periphery of the arm.
Very active galactic core.
#new-star-formation in arms that seem separating from the main body of the galaxy.
The source of the blue light (no K-Mart jokes please) is uncertain. Perhaps it's something overlapping but it seems related to the galaxy.
Lots of debris extending outside the periphery of the arms.
Somewhat resembles a #planetary-nebula
Remarkable active #merger
VERY prominent barred center
The arm distal to the viewer seems to be elevated above the plane of the galaxy. Also contains impressive #new-star-formation
#barred smooth elliptical
#squared-core in this otherwise round spiral. Also, the center seems almost solid. Anybody got any bright ideas?
Being able to see something like this is why I enjoy my feeble attempts at classification so much.
The bluish coloration is unusual. Not what I would normally associate with a blue-shifted object.
Overlapping spiral arms create an interesting figure 8 pattern.
#Double-ringed smooth round elliptical.
Unusually bright interior. Sound silly but looking at the full-screen view almost hurts the eyes.
Active #new-star-formation on the lower periphery.
Remarkable #double-ringed formation around the elliptical.
Very tight, serpentine arms.
The central spiral seems to be tearing the upper spiral apart in an active #merger.
Looks like an edge-on with strong #new-star-formation at the periphery of the arms.
I saw this as a ring around the core, with the ring angled away from the viewer.
Arms nearly create a concentric ring around the core. Can't determine whether or not the arcs touch the core anywhere. Very odd!
The blue "clumped" areas appear to be regions of active #new-star-formation.
The distal arm at the 3:00 position almost appears to be separating from the main body.
#newstarformation clumped at the peripheries.
I'm glad I'm not alone. My guess would be some sort of #nebulosity, the ring appearing to be some sort of #concentric-shockwave. Ideas?
Seems almost #helical with quite a large amount of debris surrounding it.
#newstarformation. #merger. Spirals circle the core seemingly without touching the center. Struggling with this one!
Significant tidal deformation. #merging
Double concentric rings.
Long, narrow arm seems to have separated from the galaxy at the lower left quadrant.
Distrusted galactic core.
#tidal debris off the lower right segment.
#clockwise rotating spiral
#Newstarformation at the upper and lower arcs of a ring give the impression of some sort of galaxy-wide shock wave. Impressive compression.
I'm more interested in the field of light blue at the outer left periphery of the galaxy. Could be something overlapping.
#tidaldebris emanating from the arm.
Accreting into a spiral arm?
#newstarformation occurring in a relatively small galaxy.
Two areas of intensity equally distal to the core. They seem to be objects within the galaxy, not over- or under-lapping.
#concentricrings surrounding the center. Unclear if its a photo anomaly, rings, or incredibly tight spirals.
Odd that the outer parts of the arms seem disconnected for their more proximal inner portions. Creates an almost feathery appearance.
#newstarformation throughout this spiral.
The outermost arm surrounds the entire galaxy, actually looping around on itself. That arm is also generating #newstarformation.
Active merger seems to be tearing the lower spiral apart. Surprising little new star formation given the forces at work here.
Very active #newstarformation.
Appears to be a spiral destroyed by merging. Lots of #newstarformation and #tidaldebres extending from both edges.
Spirals are disorganized - a real mess.
The classified galaxy appears much deeper than the red streak. The streak appears to be gas rather than an artifact. No core to it.
2 spirals #merging with significant #newstarformation. What a dance!
Very active #newstarformation region proximal to the neighboring galaxy.
Radius of the ring around the core is barred.
#Mergingspiral and #newstarformation
#Newstarformation with interesting blue-shifted object immediately above.
Appears to have two cores at the center of the galaxy.
Possible #merger interaction with neighbor to the left.
Active #newstarformation in both arms.
Very active regions of new star formation look like blue diamonds on a necklace.
Evidences very active star formation.
Interesting red-shifted overlapping object nearly blocking the core of the galaxy.
#doubleringed I recently read about a rare Hoag-type galaxy that has 2 concentric rings. Maybe?
Lots of debris distal to the more developed core.
A very young, developing spiral?
A very complex interaction, a larger spiral seeming to consume a much smaller galaxy. Lots of new star formation.
Clusters of new star formation create a "string of pearls" effect in the one arm.
It does indeed appear to have two intense centers. Double black holes orbiting one another?
Double ringed galaxy
Exhibits a double ring around the galactic center.
Exhibits an apparent double ring around the center.
Beautiful figure 8 pattern with a central pronounced bar.
Several clusters of star formation evident.
Each of the 2 arms is quite thick and massive. Not the multiple, narrow spirals normally seen.
Gorgeous regions of new star formation.
Ill-defined spiral arms that feature substantial new star formation underway. Very busy system.
Collision and resulting tidal disruptions.
Not sure but there appears to be a bit of lensing to the lower left of the central galaxy. Don't know what the stringy tendril could be.
The galaxy in the center of the two is the one evaluated. It seems to be a chain of non-central clumps. I'm fascinated by the right object
A dust cloud is in the upper right region of the galaxy.
There may be interaction with the smaller galaxy to the left of center.
My evaluation is for the edge-on orange galaxy, but I'm uncertain if there is simply line-of-sight overlap or an actual merger going on.
There does appear to be some sort of spiraling effect, though minimal. Looks like in this image it might be rotating clockwise.
Actually, I don't see anything in this image.
Actually 1 view of 2 spiral galaxies somewhat edge-on in a remarkable gravitational dance. What a sight!
This galaxy that it appears to be brighter at the ends and dimmer in the center. Dust obscuring the center?
There appears to be an interaction between two spiral galaxies, the smaller seeming to be moving through the arm of the larger spiral galaxy
