Interesting double ring galaxy

What is this object? May be a superposition of two ring galaxies. The 2dfGRS spectrum indicates a star-forming galaxy.


That’s really amazing!

Wow quite a first post!

For sure! Very cool.

Are you THIS Patrick Ogle? And welcome!

Can I post this to galaxy zoo?

I think it could be a double collisional ring. I think they are very rare.

Recently I found another double ring, best seen with a “contrast” of 1.4

Also this double ring from Holincheck et al. 2016

From a galaxy zoo blog post:

“This is the first example that I have ever seen of two ring galaxies created in the same collision. It seems like creating this type of system should be possible, but we aren’t sure how to create models that closely reproduce this beautiful system.”

EDIT: found with the Galaxy Zoo 2 catalog
