Might be two SN in this galaxy

It would be incredible if there is even one SN remnant in this galaxy. But I might have spied two.

Hi,

The red spot at eleven o’ clock is a cosmic ray because it has sharpe edges and it is only visible in one ‘single image exposure’. (see image below)

The red blob at nine o’ clock is a foreground star because it is visible in more than one ‘single image exposure’ from different years. A supernova doesn’t last that long.
