    Nice! It is a galaxy, but the reason for the strange colour is that it is harbouring a #QSO - a quasar for us laymen 😃

    The colors are so bright. So quasar is the reason for its color?

    Sort of 😃 Bright objects cause some interesting colours in the UKIDSS infrared images. In this case the magenta core happens to be a #QSO
