Peripheral feature ‘top right’ of galaxy

    Feature could be a distant star or more distant galaxy but seems to be incorporated within the galactic neighbourhood

    Hi Trevor thorn and welcome to the Zoo

    If the object top right is a star it is always a foreground star from our galaxy. But the small blob could also be another galaxy in the background/foreground. No way to tell without additional information (spectra).

    Happy hunting ! 😄
