    "Above" this fuzzy perhaps galaxy it seems a closer cluster of green lights and lines appear. What could they be?

    They are an artifact, cosmic ray strikes. There are many in the Hubble images, since Hubble is above the Earth's atmosphere and cosmic rays are not filtered by the Earth's air. Most havof them e been cleaned up from the phot, but the software is programmed to avoid anything inside the galaxy. in case it erases something real.
