Nice! :slight_smile: It could be a polar ring; it’s unlikely to be a pair of jets (no radio emission). Also not likely to be an EELR (a.k.a. voorwerpjie), from an earlier time when the nucleus was active (too symmetrical).

I thought it looked like a ring of some sort but it’s best I leave the conclusion to someone with more knowledge. Thanks!

That’s an excellent observation!
