    This image contains what I thought was a galaxy (top center) but it is a space warp. The bend top left of image led me astray. Comments plz

    I wouls say this is a spiral and the warp-like feature is part of an arm.

    To me it looks very much like a spiral galaxy -- would be nice to have an explanation on which feature distunguishes it as a lens...

    Hi shulima, I think this could be one of the #missingsim images - it looks like a spiral to me as well.

    Yeah, I think @capella05 is right. If there is a sim in here, its probably hidden in that bright galaxy at the top. Tough one!

    Most likely, spiral is the lens here. Some sims are difficult to get right. This case is one of those!

    Can't visualise this one either - even when it is bluer it seems more spiraly than lensy!

    Hah! This could be an example of a lens we would never find with imaging alone. Our first #impossible ! Great for bamboozling our robots 😃

    I marked the simulated lens, but still had the message "This image actually contain etc..". I now see that I shouldn't have marked it! LOL
