Seems rather bright for a Voorwerp, no? Also, there is no AGN. What else might it be?

It is not always the case that the host galaxy must necessarily have an AGN. It looks like a #voorwerp candidate I discovered before (see image below)

But they are brighter than many of the stars in the galaxy itself. It seems a bit unlikely for a Voorwerp to be so bright?
