So strange...
« on: February 23, 2011, 11:33:45 pm »
In this area full of galaxies, just zooming out, there is this strange smoke ring. Seems to be alone. Its z is surprising too : 0.02. Not so far...
What kind of galaxy is this ?? Just a ring galaxy ? But where is the core ? Hoag galaxy ? But where is the companion ??

What an incredibly cool ringy thingy ;D

I have seen a few others like it, this for example - do you think it's a little one of those? ;D

I copied below post from another thread. I see a similarity.

Here one which causes me trouble, what is the orange ball? The eccentric ring is also weird.

I made this Object of the Day a couple of weeks ago, and started a topic to collect these "smoke rings" which are rings with no nucleus.
