a glitch & a half

Nice :slight_smile: If you look in the single exposures, there is an extremely bright object in a bunch of the images. I don’t get a hit searching in the JPL minor planet center, but I’m thinking it could be a major planet or moon :slight_smile: These were all taken by proposal 2019B-0403, which was supposed to be hunting for RR Lyrae, so maybe this was just a coincidence!
