MUSE image of the strange galaxy NGC 4650A

This picture is based on data on the polar ring galaxy NGC 4650A that were obtained soon after the MUSE instrument achieved first light in early 2014. This colour view was created by collapsing the 3D MUSE data into three sections that were coloured blue, green and red. This approximates the natural colours of the object.
