It’s not just Galaxy Zoo that gets all the amazing galaxy images. Sometimes galaxies pop up in our other space projects. This picture is from the recently-launched Asteroid Zoo and was brought to our attention by a volunteers who thought it might be a UFO! Sadly it’s not. It is a beautiful edge-on galaxy. Read the discussion of this image here, and try out the project now at www.asteroidzoo.org
