The red line?

    Is the red line just an accident? what other things could it be?

    Welcome to Galaxy Zoo, jf225037!

    Yes, it's an #artifact, likely some kind of light leak in the camera, the part which contains the 'red' filter and its associated CCDs. possibly a particularly energetic cosmic ray?

    Hope this helps, and happy hunting! 😃
