Blue star

    I'm curious about the object on the left side, above the main galaxy. It looks like a bright blue star with a prominent bulge in the middle.

    well it is a star, but the bulge around the middle is not actually real. It is an artifact caused by the star's brightness, and the actual star looks different.
