https://www.legacysurvey.org//viewer/?ra=119.4642&dec=-9.2661&layer=sdss&zoom=16

Green arc feature is not referenced in SIMBAD

Might be a bow shock although GAIA PM isn’t anything special

Filed for Planetary Nebulae net but rejected as new candidate

Weird. Not a particularly dense ISM, and has a low vtan, so hard to imagine its a bow shock. Very strange indeed though.

Thanks for checking

Yeah I guess it isn’t a PNe candidate, and likely not a bow shock. So I was a bit worried it might be just an artifact after all.

But it just doesn’t look like one to me no matter how much I check

So no clue at this point, which makes these kinds of things more interesting and intriguing imo
