blob at the top

    not sure what to make of the noticeably brighter region at the top of this barred spiral. Is it other, irregular or overlap?

    Hi jwfelder and welcome to the Zoo

    The brighter blob could be a foreground star from our galaxy or it could be a star forming area in the galaxy.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
