Interesting object: An Einstein Cross?

Take a peek. It looks like gravitational reproduction to me.

Nice, but the geometry doesn’t look quite right for a gravitational lens – you need a (usually large) foreground galaxy and four copies of a background. Hard to get from a single galaxy, often need a cluster. My guess is that this is a small cluster (hence the galaxies are all the same color). SDSS has spectra of 3 of the members and they’re all at about the same redshift.
