    What's up with the blue dot? Foreground object? Burst of star formation?

    Foregroundstar or SN?

    Hmm, has a spectrum, hot hydrogen narrow hydrogen alpha peak, not much hot oxygen so not star forming,

    Maybe a relativistic jet hitting a hydrogen cloud? An unrecorded supernova. We need C_cld

    looking with Aladin in DSS and SDSS filters and streches available , my 1st guess is #SNe for the round blue blob

    Thanks C_cld and Budgieye, you just made my day 😃

    Sorry no; I didn't pay attention to the spectrum but also to the CFHTLS field where it's clearly a very bright hotspot as in #merger; no SN

    Thanks Leonie, I almost lost faith in making a worthwhile discovery....

    Pointing today an old SDSS SN image is worth only the fun to unfold a long past event of which no professional cares about. 😃

    Okay 😃

    To echo C_cld - the further investigation of objects posted on talk is mainly for our own education and to involve a wider community 😃

    The point of GZ is not about making personal discoveries, but rather contributing to the group collective.

    Sorry 😦 I now have to get back to studying, so I will be scarce for the next few weeks...

    . Science is about discoveries. I don't see the problem of using GZ data for personal use. Especially after the amount of time in we put in
