Interesting one. A little bit of curvature but might just the shape the interaction has taken. It’s in KiDS-BEXGO catalogue as lensing but not confirmed. Doesn’t seem to be definitely either way though

I’m not familiar with the catalogue, can anyone catalogue or is it actually only people in the field of research? Not that I want to catalogue it, since I don’t really know lol.

It’s one of the gravitational lensing catalogues in Vizier. Vizier can take a little getting used to to work. Sadly, I am not in the field of research :slight_smile:
