Starforming and ring?

Certainly a very highly star-forming, likely dwarf galaxy. Hard to say whether the outer parts are a ring structure, particularly because there is very little colour difference (which ~implies a similar age throughout). More likely this is the beginnings of a disk forming in this galaxy with several clumps of star formation feeding into the central region.

Some HST/JWST data would be useful :stuck_out_tongue:

Seems to be a jellyfish with radio & UV tails

Thanks a lot for your comment!

Thanks for the comment

I can’t put my finger on where the UV tails are here, might just be a symptom of the poor resolution.

The galex images available on this survey are pretty sketchy, yeah. This galaxy is included in a paper that notes asymmetric extension in a better galex image.


Neat! Thanks for the follow up :slight_smile:
