Interesting comparison between the inner spiral region and its large blue population and the loosely wound outer arms.

One more quiet impressive spiral. Isn't it amazing what beatiful things out there ...

By the way, this object is only part of that big galaxy, I thought.

Hello,

Cool!

Apologies for any duplicates, there's just SO many to look at!

I know the above probably belongs in mergers, but it was too pretty not to share here too.

http://cas.sdss.org/astro/en/tools/explore/obj.asp?id=587733431924687219

So delicate looking!

The object I was actually supposed to classify here looks like it might be a quasar WAY behind this beautiful spiral galaxy, but what it really was kind of got lost in the awe.


Lost the ref # on this one, sadly.
