Congratulations to UMD Graduate Student Burcin Mutlu-Pakdil who has spent the last 8 months studying an unnamed Galaxy.

Given the fact that I had to drop Astronomy twice in College all of this is so far over my head I can't even, but what an amazing accomplishment for her. Apparently new Galaxies are being discovered all of the time, but  this one is very unique. All I know is way to much math is involved in this whole process, so rest assured I will not be someone to ever discover a new Galaxy.
