Odd… Not in gaia, so while it could be a WD, that would be unusual.

Oh, I think it’s actually a transient – have a look at the single exposures – the g are all taken near in time, and it appears in only some of the r band, those taken near the same time.

Ah, good shout! An MPC query identifies it as (126514) 2002 CK74.
