    Nice three-armed, blue #spiral with a bright #foregroundstar.

    Hard to tell if it is a 3 arm or if there is lensing from a star in the foreground. Or artifact?

    A star cannot do the lensing visible in these images. Even Spirals are not nearly massive enough to do any lensing ! .

    So, I'd go for a foreground star and a lovely (very special) three-armed spiral ! 😄 Nice catch
