Happy Holidays!
« on: December 24, 2010, 11:40:08 am »
A Mergers Christmas Card



When merging galaxies @MergerZoo you can grab the simulation and turn it round and view the sim from all different angles. The galaxies I used in the picture believe it or not viewed from another angle resemble (as best they can) this galaxy SDSS ID: 587747120521216156

Anyway I could instantly see a dinosaur or two ancient underwater sea creatures. Which somehow seems perfectly fitting for these colossal galactic interacting galaxies.


I really hope you like the picture!
Happy Christmas and fun holidays to All Zooites and everyone working on Galaxy Zoo Mergers.

 :)   Amazing picture!

I think I see a dinosaur (but is it missing legs?).  Very cool!
