ESO 501-64: possible jellyfish galaxy


SIMBAD shows “interacting galaxies”, but it is clearly a jellyfish galaxy. Those type of galaxies fly trough a galaxy cluster and have usually strong star-formation caused by the ram pressure they experience.

Neither SIMBAD, nor NED shows a reference that this is a jellyfish galaxy known to science.

It has with z=0.121470 a relative low redshift.

Only in legacy dr9.
