    Hi. New to Galaxy Zoo so not sure what to make of this image. Is it a galaxy or not? Would like to hear more about the colours of this image if anyone can tell me more... Thanks.

    It is actually a foreground star (i.e. a star from our own galaxy), that has been over saturated due to a imaging error.

    You can read up more information in this thread. It also cover other artifacts you could come across 😃

    Happy Hunting!
