Looks like a perfect Voorwerpje candidate to me, cant check if its posted already but might just toss it in the Voorwerp thread just in case if I were you :+1:

Its detected in all bands, so i’d say voorwerp is highly unlikely unless there’s some very odd ionization mechanics. Gravitationally distorted polar ring is a good guess.
