What is that big red spot close to the galaxy?

    I am new to this project and can someone explain this red spot?

    Hi and welcome @Daphrose 😃

    The red object looks like a foreground star from our own galaxy- SkyServer has it tagged as a galaxy - but the colour and definitions has all the hallmarks of being a star.

    Hope this helps, and sorry for the late reply!
