Hubble Zoo - ring galaxies
« on: April 26, 2010, 02:40:43 pm »
This thread will give a place to post ring galaxies from Hubble Zoo. (I've shown samples here). Just to kick things off, here is a really nearby example from Hubble: Arp 147.

Very faint, I know - and I'm not at all sure I'm seeing what I think I'm seeing - but the majority of the ring seems well "north" of the core, so I thought I'd post it to see if this is the type of thing you're looking for - or is this just too fuzzy?  :)
