Looks to me like the halo's the spiral arms of a distant galaxy, while the foreground object is a dust cloud lit by the star at the bottom.
BG object.. I wouldn't think a jet could be that bright unless it were pointing right at us, in which case you wouldn't see its length.
It looks to me like an edge-on view of a SMBH munchin' on a star. #AGN
I'd say that the one on the right is a foreground star, but not the bottom object.
What's this? Do colors represent energy emitted? If so, I guess the spot could be a quasar (or maybe a blazar?). It looks like a gobstopper!
