90025865   Red object above the central galaxy.

This one bothers me. :-\  Presumably that blue galaxy (spiral edge-on) is nearer, less red-shifted.  If that's so, and that red ball is a very far distant compact galaxy, then it must be truly gigantic, on a never-before seen (probably unstable) scale. :o  Seems to me the red ball is far more likely a star nearer than the galaxy, but not so bright it's overwhelming the optics.  Not to mention, well, the obvious--it is a ball.  But until we get spectra there's no telling. :'(

A blue nucleus (or star?) overlapping a red pea (lentil ;) ? Help!

I think we're just going to have to wait for clarification about how to interpret the colors in the images.  HST uses different filters than the ones SDSS uses.  It also appears they often aren't perfectly aligned, and it's hard to know what that means, if anything.

Thanks Paul,  I just hadn't seen one centered yet so differently colored.

Could be a ringed galaxy but hard to be sure at this distance and angle.

Possible overlap?


90010869


90002520
Another possible ringed galaxy?


90006706
Could be interesting with 3D glasses on...  ::)
