Quote from: Sherrie-jo on November 01, 2010, 09:24:21 pmAre the green spheres around this galaxy "peas"? There a a lot of green spheres and also a lot of blue, purple and red happenings all around the edge. Any idea of what is going on here? Thanks for any help. Unfortunately, the objects that you have pointed out are not green Peas, but are an effect of pictures seen from the'Stripe 82' set of pictures. This blog entry and thread can explain it better than I can, but the greeness comes from pixelisationand photographic artifacts etc. http://blogs.zooniverse.org/galaxyzoo/2009/09/02/stripe-82-digging-deeper/http://www.galaxyzooforum.org/index.php?topic=277015.0Hope this helps. More information on Peas can be found here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pea_galaxy
