whooaahhhh thats weird

Awesome! I wonder if there’s another galaxy that we can’t see that is interacting with it.

transformer galaxy

Now that I’ve read about Voorwerps, I wonder if this is such a phenomenon?
(Actually, now I think just about everything is a Vorrwerp or a “Green Bean Galaxy”!)

remember that a voorwerp is an irregularly-shaped cloud of gas near a galaxy, that glows in visible on the edges

Here are some examples of #voorwerpjes (quasar ionisation galaxies I discovered) They have that deep blue color, magenta or green color. The host galaxy must have an AGN (Active Galactic Nucleus). In my language (Dutch) Voorwerp means ‘object’.
