I hope you don't mind, Neuromante, but I've corrected the spelling - "clumpy". It's got clumps - little blobs, little dense clouds etc.

For me a clumpy edge-on Galaxy.

arXiv:1111.6973v1  Evidence for Three Accreting Black Holes in a Galaxy at z~1.35: A Snapshot of Recently Formed Black Hole Seeds?
Quote from: Kevin Schawinski, Meg Urry & all
ABSTRACT
One of the key open questions in cosmology today pertains to understanding when, where and how super massive black holes form, while it is clear that mergers likely play a significant role in the growth cycles of black holes, how supermassive black holes form, and how galaxies grow around them. Here, we present Hubble Space Telescope WFC3/IR grism observations of a clumpy galaxy at z = 1.35, with evidence for 106 − 107M⊙ rapidly growing black holes in separate sub-components of the host galaxy. These black holes could have been brought into close proximity as a consequence of a rare multiple galaxy merger or they could have formed in situ. Such holes would eventually merge into a central black hole as the stellar clumps/components presumably coalesce to form a galaxy bulge. If we are witnessing the in-situ formation of multiple black holes, their properties can inform seed formation models and raise the possibility that massive black holes can continue to emerge in star-forming galaxies as late as z = 1.35 (4.8 Gyr after the Big Bang).

Fig. 1.— GOODS V Iz composite image (V – blue; I– green; z – red). The morphology is irregular and clumpy. There is no sign of any tidal tails indicative of a recent interaction or merger even at the imaging depth of the GOODS data.

AHZ2000ceh


In the end I considered as a dominant feature of this galaxy, the clumpy filament that crosses from north to south are two spiral arms.

Just to let you clumpy fans know that I'm working with an undergrad at Yale on the clumpies. She should be presenting a poster at the next AAS meeting on preliminary results...

It's not based on the threads but on the clicks on the site.

The Clicks = Input of Data to the System so each click you make adds More Data to the System and gives the Profesional Astronomers more to Work with.

The Threads are Additional Iceing on the Cake!

Not always! Individual discoveries are sometimes made in the threads. See: green peas, Voorwerp/jes etc.
