Could this be a Hanny's Voorwerp as well?
« on: February 12, 2008, 04:44:03 pm »
I only started this topic, to have something to link to in my original topic, but I don't have a candidate. In fact, I thought Chris had checked and didn't find any more of them.. but, if you do think you've find a little friend for the Hanny's Voorwerp, place it here! ;D

I'll see if I can do some splitting and merging of more recent posts into this thread...

Being a moderator is like being Dr. Frankenstein! Just cut and stitch it back together! It's alive!
Good news everyone!

I wish it were that simple! It's hard to get it in the right order!

edit: OK, I give up. I just seem to keep breaking things! Anyway, stickied this so that hopefully everyone else catches on!
I'll go and do something which I can't fluff up so easily ;)

Poor Edd. I thought of doing that but chickened out - but all those split posts would come before Hanny's anyway. This is why, when making new threads like the Nebulae Collection, I have to crash in on the first post with apologies to make the announcement of what in the Universe is going on! :)

You know, I'll scroll down the original topic, get every link that has been posted and post them here (as links) again.. so, shiny buttons can be a pain as well, but don't worry ;) :-*

Edit: :) here are all the links of possible Hanny's Voorwerpen in the original topic. I've posted everything that has been suggested there, even the ones that look like obvious spirals to me, 'cause I don't think it's up to me to deside. Sorry, didn't know there were so many, but anyway:

You know Hanny, I notice how you haven't posted any since your original one that started this all off :P
Before and after practicing Judo or engaging in a match, opponents bow to each other. Bowing is an expression of gratitude and respect. In effect, you are thanking your opponent for giving you the opportunity to improve your technique.

No, I don't, haven't got any that looked like that to me, besides that, chances are small anyway ;) but well, let's see, who knows...

I must confess ( having not long got home) that I am not going to wade through all of these - though I glanced at a few - but there is simply nothing to compare with Hanny's original and if I find it I will definitely post it(again:)

Commendations for the effort, are you on half term or something:)

As ever
