Galaxy Zoo Talk
Twin elliptical galaxies merging, formign an elegant star bridge between them.
Lovely photogenic "S" pinwheel, probably in transformation.
Suspect this is a gravitational lens dippelganger, with images distorted 90 degrees from each other. Dark matter lens?
Magnificent multi arm dim pinwheel spiral.
Spiral evolves into elliptical?
Is this an early predominantly dark matter galaxy?
Seems to be an elegant overlap, one pinwheel over another.
Fabulously loose two arm pinwheel.
Triple nucleus merger.
Far distant merger is my best guess.
Is this an amazing merger between two objects at right angles, (90 degrees apart) or some kind of gravitational lens?
Possible gravitational lens or light distortion effect.
Photogenic loose pinwheel.
Unsure what is pulling this edge on spiral apart. Note also several clumps nearby.
Spiraling star bridges. Beautiful merger encounter.
Photogenic halo, unsure of its origin. An old merger?
Unsure of the pinkish blobs? Older merger smaller galaxies? Or Hanny's Voorwerps red shifted?
Strongly suspect gravitational lens, created by nearby objects, is distorting (warping) shape of this target.
Loose, thick and hazy but photogenic ring.
Possible graviational lens twin mirror image objects - dark matter creating doppelgangers? Objects similar, close but don't rip each other.
Would this dim object be a galaxy mostly composed of dark matter? Needs further analysis.
Possible gravitational lenses from object in front of target?
Thick polar halo strongly suggests a merger under way.
Diffuse object with dense core, Unsure if merging with others.
Note the clms - eating smaller galaxies?
Suspect mirror image graviational lens twin. Note two objects appear similar and close, but do not pull each other apart.
Dim defuse irregular object with bright dense core - I have never seen one like this in thousands of ohotos.
Very loose spiral, almost an elliptical.
Long slender ethereal edge on spiral. Unsure of the nature of the odd rectangular artifact occluding its centre.
Strange loose dim and thin "g\host galaxy" with what appear to be four pinwheel like spiral arms.
Note similar object almost 90 degrees opposite of target. Seems unlikely such twins are coincidence, but not sure what is going on.
Suspect graviational lens mirror image doppelganger. Note objects close and similar, do not pull each other apart. Likely it's one galaxy.
One arm fairly loose spiral with core off center.
Look closely - it's a double ring object.
Two nuclei coming together.
Photogenic pinwheel spiral with two arms, one arm sweeps around and outside the other.
Thinly populated "ghost" galaxy.
Very loose but photogenic double pinwheel spiral.
Ringed loose double pinwheel.
Loose double pinwheel, pleasure to the eys.
Photogenic pinwheel spiral. Harrd to count arms.
Gorgeous multi arm spiral, as photogenic as it gets.
Photogenic tight but widely spread out two arm spiral. Arms spread out much more than is common.
Lovely loose ring spiral, evolving into elliptical?
beautiful loose three aem spiral - a real gem.
Appears to be a double ringer photogenic beauty.
Strongly suspect this object is actually one, not two. Gravitational lens mirror image twins. Note the objects do NOT ripl each other.
Very dim, probably distant elliptical, Not many stars, is it an old primordial galaxy?
Sideways spiral or long cigar elliptical? Best guess is the former.
A tough read. Difficult to say how may spiral arms in this photogenic object. Best guess is three.
Appeasr the most far distant object ever seen in the Zoo. A very early galaxy?
Photogenic "S" pinwheel loose spiral.
Elegantly dim edge on spiral.
Highly photogenic object thta appears to be two rings, a thick inner ring and a loose and dim one. Probably recent or ongoing mergers. Gem.
Loose spiral forms a giant letter "S" - probably merged awhile ago,
Appears to be a whole flock of objects in various states of merger - all into one, sooner or later.
Suspect multiple objects merger, I see star bridges.
Photogenic tight spiral, two arms, one tight, one quite loose, suspect it ran into another object awhile back, tio create a pinwheel switl.
A hybrid tight spiral some would call elliptical.
Photogenic merger of similar spirals.
Possible triple merger.
Photogenic armless spiral, as thogh there wewre a smaller, brighter galaxy within the larger one. Not common.
Photogenic triple galactic merger.
No merger nor tidal debris here, but object appears loose in structure by its own nature. Steve Wetlesen
Photogenic edge on spiral is elongated due to mergers with twio much smaller objects. A real celestial gem.
Galaxy is mostly elliptical, but cclear signs of two spiral arms. Call this object a hybrid.
Artifact streaks obscure this object.
U spot three galactic nuclei - a triple merger?
Possible gravitational lens? Looks like a mirror image at odd angles with its "twin" - one object showing as two?
Possible Einsteinian gravitational lens spotted here. Identical twins close by, but do not pull each other apart. . Steve Wetlesen,
Multiple objects merging, two very long denris trails. Hard to figure dynamics of this one out.
Main body blue shifted (?) to the green spectrum, a slight yerllow ring, then a core red shifted (?? - such a rainbow unlikely. What gives?
An elegant spiral that likely looks a lot like our own Milky Way seen from afar. Pinwheels don't get much better than this gem.
Incredibly ellongated - a real distant beauty queen!
Multiple round elliptical objects merging.
Two Hanny's Voorwerps observed above and t right of target. Please note thick blob shape and very deep blue color.
Suspect very close in identical twin double images caused by possible gravitaional lens. Notice pverlap ellipticals don't rip each other.
Multiple mergers galaore, also see lots of very deep blue Hanny's Voorwerps towards right edge of my screen.
Very deep blue small round globe object lower left of target loose spiral galaxy - is blue sphere one of Hanny's Voorwerps?
Suspect multiple object merger.
Identical twins here, no tidal debris or merging, look same from different angles. Suspect they are gravitational lens mirror images of one!
See deep blue dots all around this red shifted object - suspect them to be more examples of Hanny's Voorwerps!
At least five (5), maybe more, glactic objects appear to be merging into one!
At least five (5), possibly six (6) galactic objects appear to be merging at the same time into one!
Distant photogenic tight pinwheels don't get much better than this gem! Where has this galaxy been all my life?!
Five smaller galaxies counted merging with the central large target.
A cluster of ellipticals is forward of this faint ghostly loose spiral.
Appears to be a ferocious red shift?
See huge dark area below target in this otherwise thick cluster - suspect this, possibly other dark clumps, are huge pockets of dark matter.
Photogenic edge on spiral in a large cluster of mostly round ellipticals, or possibly the cluster is forward of the spiral.
Lovely wraparound pinwheel. Well worth a look!
Five, count 'em, five (5) smallish galaxies merging or interacting in an arcing line. A sixth object is just in the background, see bottom.
Far distant pinwheels don't get muhc more lovely. Include this one in "The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxies" in honor of Douglas Adams.
No sign of merger and no tidal effects, yet two extremely close galaxies appear almost identical. Suspect gravitationbal lens twins.
Put this on the itinerary of the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxies!
Absolutely lovely cluster of elliptical galaxies. Good cosmic tourist destination.
Holy Toledo! This one is being ripped apart!
Ordinary run of the mill round elliptical, but it is really pulling on its neighbors! Dark matter here? Or is it a gravitational lens?
Lovely photogenic little object deserving of a telescope with more firepower! I enjoyed being a tourist there!
