Apologies, just getting started. Is this a star or a 'circular' galaxy? Thanks
Welcome to Galaxy Zoo, Robthompson!
The fuzzy yellowish thing in the center is indeed a galaxy, and pretty close to 'perfectly round' too; yes, 'circular galaxy' is a good description.
Happy hunting! 😃

It is smooth, round galaxy. Galaxies have fuzzy edges, stars have sharper edges.
Hard to know if it is an elliptical or a spiral since I can't see any detail.
