Help understanding what this is

    Can anyone explain the features I am seeing? I am having trouble understanding what is going on in this image. Thanks!

    Hi @loopyllama and welcome to GZ 😃

    At the center of the image we have a somewhat irregular galaxy that has several denser clumps of star formation. The bright round object just to the left of the galaxy is a foreground star.
    Remember to only ever classify the object directly at the center 😃

    In this case start with 'features or disk' and take it from there! Let us know if you need further clarification.
