    I've never seen anything like that.. What is that trail of stuff?

    Can you imagine living in a solar system within that faint trail circling that galaxy? Your entire night sky would be filled with a bird's eye view of it....

    Many thanks for this piece of news. I liked it a lot.

    I don't mean to contradict the experts, but those loops are similar to the loops -- the proms -- seen coming from the sun.

    We might want to consider the possibility that a whole galaxy can create that kind of pattern when matter is ejected (not just when matter is absorbed as happens when galaxies collide).

    Clears,
    Joe
