    could this be a supernova at the edge of a galaxy or is it more likely to be a separate galaxy behind the one towards the bottom of image??

    Hi nickwingham and welcome to the Zoo

    Definitely not a supernova. It could be a foreground/background galaxy. And it could also be a star forming area in the galaxy.

    Happy hunting ! 😄

    The round object in the center of the image is a galaxy with z=0.08199. The bigger galaxy below it has z=0.08238, so they are not too far from each other.
