What is this?
« on: June 07, 2010, 04:26:51 am »
I just saw a really cool looking picture with lots of colours.  Just wondering if anyone could help me identify this.  Is it just an artefact or is there something actually going on here?

Hi rdunlop
Welcome to the Galaxy Zoo forum  :)
It's an artifact, when two images near a star were joined together.
