A strange one


This looks rather odd - could it be gravitational lensing? The bright arc around the central object is highly asymmetric so it doesn’t look like any normal galaxy to me.

Think it looks liike it.

Does this have a spectrum, e.g. SDSS? If so, there may be signs of a second redshift system, which could point to at least an overlap if not an sgl.

There are no spectra on SDSS
