    Or are they gamma rays?? Or has it turned into a nutron star??

    Nice. Probably a very long trail of stars. Cosmic ray strikes are much smaller.

    Neutrons stars are too small to see at this distance, but I can see the resemblance.

    Relativistic jet? I would expect brighter colours, hmmmm Any opinions. It is a straight line, doesn't look like a star spike.

    Would the appropriate classification be a "star or artifact?"

  • Budgieye by Budgieye moderator

    It is a galaxy, the artifact from the star nearby doesn't affect the image much, so just ignore it.

    So that's actually a line of stars going from corner to corner in this picture? That is so strange..

    No, not a line of stars - a diffraction spike from a star off screen to the left. Unrelated to the galaxy at the center of the image 😃
