Welcome to the Galaxy Zoo forum, VJOM!  :)


Galaxy Ref: 587736941981466667

http://cas.sdss.org/astro/en/tools/chart/chart.asp?ra=214.26050801&dec=36.57158845

Here's a DR7 image of this, from Navigate:



It's certainly a spectacular sight!

The two galaxies are NGC 5544 and NGC 5545, also known as Arp 199. They've been posted in the forum many, many times before!  ;D The earliest I could find dates from August 06, 2007, which is barely days after the forum began (appropriately, it's in The "Take My Breath Away" Galaxies- for only the most beautiful thread).

However, I don't think it looks anything like The Aida Enigma galaxy ...

Jean Tate thanks for your welcome, when I do not understand how to publish the pictures in the forum, but I will continue looking to learn. :)

 :D Yes another asteroid for the first picture. Blue lights here. I do not think so for the Super Nova



 and
which are the red spots on images?

Galaxy Ref: 588011124654735462



 The red dot a star....You are doing well. Posting pictures with the reference number and all. Awesome but............My turn to use the the translator,   

es importante que usted publique en el tema sugerido.HERE El hilo conductor que vaya a publicar en el es especial. Ah, y espero que esta traducción que funciona y que no offened. LiZ

I hoped that worked/Tenía la esperanza de que trabajó

I've finished going through a small sample of DR1 Table 2 galaxies (~450 in all), and found just three more that look vaguely like The Aida Enigma galaxy:



Respectively:
SDSS J232519.83-005154.4 (DR7 ObjId 587731185126408273), 8% Elliptical, 80% ACW, 8% Edge, 5% Merger
SDSS J232701.00+004543.3 (DR7 ObjId 587731187274023101), 5% Elliptical, 2% CW, 70% ACW, 22% Edge, 2% Don't Know (posted before, by MKS in the Ring Galaxy thread)
SDSS J223517.99+010748.5 (DR7 ObjId 587731187805257891), 3% CW, 73% ACW, 21% Edge, 3% Don't Know.

The last one has somewhat odd colors (especially the blue and purple spot on the left), a blue arm* (on the right), and a strange spectrum (to my eye: in emission, strong H-alpha, [NII], and [SII], moderately strong [OII] (near 400 nm), yet the green [OIII] lines are essentially invisible, and there's a prominent unmarked emission line at ~760 nm).



* I found several galaxies like this; I may post a selection later, in a different thread

Here are five others, which I feel also look vaguely like The Aida Enigma galaxy (though the resemblance is, to my eye, weaker than any others I've posted so far).




Respectively, left to right, top to bottom:
SDSS J223817.90+144310.6 (DR7 ObjId 587727223552409829), 7% Elliptical, 76% CW, 10% Edge, 3% Don't Know, 3% Merger
SDSS J221247.78-004136.7 (DR7 ObjId 587734303803965763), 3% Elliptical, 80%CW, 3% ACW, 14% Edge
SDSS J225858.72+143440.6 (DR7 ObjId 587730774956048475), 85% CW, 4% ACW, 12% Edge
SDSS J225756.44-093457.2 (DR7 ObjId 587726878350377048), 8% Elliptical, 70% ACW, 15% Edge, 4% Don't Know
SDSS J225023.98+145625.4 (DR7 587730775492002222), 17% Elliptical, 78% ACW, 6% Edge.

The spectrum of the first has prominent HANS lines (as I call them, H-alpha, [NII], and [SII]), with the blue [OII] line (actually a doublet) weak, and the green [OIII] ones invisible (very similar to 587731187805257891 in my last post):

Here's a very similar galaxy, that appeared in the new Zoo (AGZ0004th0):
