How to tell?

  • KimFryer by KimFryer

    This looks like a Spral Galaxy to me, but how do you tell just looking at the picture whether it is a Galaxy, Star, Satelite etc?

    Yes, a spiral galaxy. Stars are round, with slightly sharper edges. Satellites leave a streak. See some of the advice over on the left of the screen and the recent page.
