faint blue arc or spiral arms ?

  • ElisabethB by ElisabethB moderator

    Faint blue arcs around the galaxies at the top? They're probably disturbed spiral arms.

    Any thoughts on this ?

    I think it is a plausible #lens candidate

    agree, looks really promising

    I think @ElisabethB and @C_cld were meaning the outer ring.

    The faint one linking the top galaxy in the 11 o'clock position, down clockwise and around, to the 9 o'clock galaxy.
