I’m not usually 100% lost but this is interesting

Doesn’t seem like an artifact, it’s fascinating but If anyone has an idea on what I’m looking at I greatly appreciate the help.
Only one shot so there isn’t much to compare it to.

Got so excited I didn’t bother to check simbad. They consistently show up for me in different colors (I know it’s meaningless) and I commonly see green That’s all I’m normally looking for at least

Hello,

This is supernova SN 2016aak. It is already reported in the TNS. It is also visible in PanSTARRS.
