Amazing Galaxy of the Week (from DECaLS)


This week’s amazing galaxy comes from Galaxy’s Zoo’s new Dark Energy Camera Legacy Survey (DECaLS) data set that only went live last week.

Already, first commenter @TieferHimmel has found this gorgeous barred, four-armed spiral, with a edge-on overlap as well. Thanks to user @Capella05 for suggesting it on the Daily Zoo Suggestions board of Talk!

Go check out the DECaLS data on Galaxy Zoo, or find and measure more barred galaxies at Galaxy Zoo: Bar Lengths!
