Help in identifying object

  • Gutrocks by Gutrocks

    There is an object at the 4:30 position from the galaxy that I am unable to identify. Can anyone help with this?

    Hi Gutrocks and welcome to the Zoo,

    The faint dot is probably a foreground star from our galaxy. The arc is an optical artifact.

    Happy hunting !
