Huge 'thing' near galaxy

  • Haga by Haga


    There are a huge band of similar composition on the left bottom quadrant of the image (from another plane I believe).
    Can anyone confirm for me that it is just some #ImagePolution ?!

    Hi Haga,

    No, that is not light pollution - If you have a look in SkyServey with an expanded view you can see it is another galaxy 😃

    The image below is from Skysurvey, so it is slightly rotated compared to the image you classified. That tiny galaxy at the center, is the same one you can see on the left.
