Yeah, the guy who runs the Jellyfish zooniverse project really liked this one. Pretty spectacular.

Yeah, I found it before you @tombickle! But here’s another candidate for the “000” project!

The 000 project is part of collecting many galaxies for the new upcoming project.

Already posted it in the A thread of DES/Legacy/HSC candidates (as ssonya7149)

No, in the nicest way you didn’t (not that it matters who found it first). This particular one is very well known and has been known for a while.

Lol GZ people and their insistence on telling you they found a thing before you. Kinda funny.

Niko, could you send the reference for it being known? I had a look through the literature when I originally posted it and can’t say I came across anything about ram pressure. It definitely feels like it should be known… its fairly blatent.

Weirdly, I might now look like an idiot because I can’t find a literature reference. I can’t find literature on it but I have discussed this one with Callum and Jake on zooniverse and it was on the “about” section of that zooniverse project as an example jellyfish for a while though, so it is at least known to them.

I think I posted it there during the beta (back in november), so its possible they added it to the about page for the full project? :man_shrugging:

Guessing so. Have 100% discussed + seen this there with Jake and maybe Callum
