This galaxy looks to have an incredibly bright star. I thought maybe supernova or quasar. I dont think its in Milky Way. Maybe has not blown yet? Super soon maybe.

It has proper motion, so its a star.

That parallax is very dodgy, though :slight_smile: – it’s confidently claimed to be at negative distance; and the proper motions are marginal.
