Green Line?

    What could be this red line? For me looks like something that is not a galaxy, but I am really amateur. What do yot think this could be?

    Red line??? If you mean the green line, it's a satellite trail. Beacuse of its speed and the fact that it reflects the sun it get caught in only one filter and that's why it appears green...
    Oh and the red dot is probably a star.
