The star color

    Seems like a sci-fi implosion. Any ideas why it has a red outer glare?

    This is an infrared image so the colours are not real (All images with UKIDSS in the bottom right corner are infrared)

    Also, foreground stars are too bright for the camera and the strange colours are caused by over saturation.
