Galaxy Zoo Bar Lengths is currently on the hunt for “wobbly” galaxies where the disk is sloshing around its bar. This galaxy’s bar is very off-center compared to the center of its disk and may keep wobbling around for at least a billion years. Your identification of these galaxies in GZBL will help us understand this important phase of galaxy evolution. The project is nearly complete, but you can still contribute by classifying at www.zooniverse.org/projects/vrooje/galaxy-zoo-bar-lengths!
