As for the first and second, they looks like multicolor galaxies (is that possible?). The third looks like a blue sky egg.  ;D

I posted this one earlier in the "Weird..." list.  Can't figure out what the object is that is seemingly connected to the central galaxy in the lower left.

Something like that would be my choice for object of the day.
So far we've been mostly getting famous messier objects, which while understandably incredible, aren't really what SDSS is about in my opinion.

That's got to be a photographic artefact, three prongs?
