Quasar?

extremely bright in VLASS

Likely not a quasar. They don’t tend to have as much radio activity. It’s in simbad as a BL Lacertae object / blazar, which makes sense given the strong radio signature.

Never heard of a blazar! What’s that?

An AGN with a jet of ionized matter pointed almost towards us.

:+1: always learning!
