    The red beam is a satellite trail. Not connected wit the galaxy whatsoever

    The red beam is very dim and is behind, all of the satelites I have seen are very bright, is it possible that this is a polar jet?

    Nope, this is a satellite trail. It only appears to be behind the galaxy, because the galaxy is so much brighter

    If you look closely you can see that the #satellite trail actually passes in front of the galaxy, but the galaxy almost overwhelms it
