    Maybe it is me, but the sims always look a little "off"

    "Off" in color, position, size ?

    That's right - the #sim s are only approximations to real life: good enough for training purposes, but when you look really closely...

    I think this will show up in the bluer band in the Quick dashboard? Such lenses may not be easy to spot for this contrast.

    I wish we could get these into the quick dashboard somehow. Anyway it's going to be the yellow object halfway down on the right edge.

    Boom! @technos, you're good 😃 These ones are particularly tricky, but massive yellow galaxies are great things to focus on

    One in every few hundred massive yellow elliptical galaxies is acting as a lens, so they're well worth the extra attention!

    You know what, I'm starting a collection. I'm going to call them #buried #rings or maybe just #BuriedRings, and we'll see how many we find!

    Actually I guess #BuriedRing makes more sense, since there's only one of them 😃
