Supernova ?

    Could the white light that's visible under the center of the galaxy be a supernova?

    Hi unloco and welcome to the Zoo

    The bright white spot is most probably a foreground star from our galaxy. To determine whether you see a supernova, you would need at least two images of this galaxy taken before and after.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
