    i m new in the zoo . sorry for my english and my galactical mistakes
    I think the bright blue ring is not an artefact or a star. Is it a galaxy?

    Hi orion123

    Welcome to the Zoo ! 😄

    The blue object at the top is indeed a foreground star from our galaxy. The colors , spikes and weird center are optical artifacts.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
