    I've only just started classifying, but four objects in a very straight line seems strange to me. Is this some sort of reflection or weird exposure, a really cool coincidence, or something else?

    Hi Embyrr922 and welcome to the Zoo,

    Yep, this is a really cool coincidence. The central larger object is a galaxy. The smaller ones are probably foreground stars from our galaxy.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
