This thread is meant to solicit other such structures on the sky that have been imaged, thought about at least a bit, but no consensus as to its cause has yet been formed. If you know of such a structure, please mention it in a reply to this post. Thanks for contributing, if you can.

The galaxy I refer to can be seen in this picture by Adam Block. The galaxy is located "straight below" NGC 5195 in this image. The galaxy looks like a "blue handlebar inside a bubble".
