Galaxy?

Odd deep red core for a galaxy isn’t it? Perhaps a PNe candidate good enough for reporting?

Unrelated and unhelpful (sorry) but the pattern on it looks like the flag of Kyrgyzstan :slight_smile:

Lolwut? Where do you see this pattern? I guess my eyes are getting old :smiley:

The big star right below. More just the yellow bit tbh - I might be losing it.

Yeah, it kinda does look like the flag.

I wonder - if you gathered all data from all the surveys ever - if you could find a star for each flag. Might be a fun project to search for certain pixel arrangements with a little algorithm.

Ah ok, not the central object of my initial post I see :+1:

That thing looks off to me, could be a galaxy but then the core looks too bright / dark red to me

yeh no sorry for being completely unhelpful. I agree. I have seen reddish galaxies with blue cores but never the other way around. I reckon you’re right - might be good to look into.

No problem, never know to what a forked discussion leads to :slight_smile:
