Classic example of a jellyfish galaxy


That’s somewhat of a misnomer.
It is better interpreted as a superb example of an edge-on warped spiral galaxy. Then one can add additional attributes. I myself can see no resemblance to a jellyfish morphology.

Eh? This is textbook jellyfish… In a cluster, assymmetry, shows clear tails, starforming clumps at end of tails. Absolute classic jellyfish morphology

OK Tom. I’ve just replied to Chris Snells latest find. another edge-on warped spiral with a prefered direction of travel, against the Hubble flow.
