Info on Zwicky’s Necklace


Recommended Posts


Maybe someone can recall a unique image posted approx. 8-10 yrs ago ?.  It was a pic of Zwicky’s 8Zw388., a very distant ring of galaxies in Virgo. Of course it resembled a tiny necklace. I have been wanting to try my luck at this one. But didn’t have the right equipment then.

I’ll never find the old post here. But it seems it was titled Celestrial Jewelry because included with the Necklace was a ring-figure  (Hoag’s Ring)???

Glad to be back on SGL after a long time.
