A Voorwerpje?

  • CeciliaB by CeciliaB

    What is the object to the left of the star? Could it be a Voorwerpje?

    Hi CeciliaB,

    Are you referring to the blue bits in the central galaxy? Those are regions of intense star formation - so no voorwerpje - sorry!

    Here is the galaxy in its entirety - the orientation is slightly different but you can see it clearer.

    Happy hunting!
