    hey just wondering what are all the blue spots that are all round this galaxy?

    The two bright round white objects are foreground stars from our galaxy. Some of the blue dots around the galaxy could also be foreground stars and some could be other galaxies. The blue clumps in the galaxy are active starforming regions in the galaxy.

    Happy hunting !
