Example of Star superimposed on a Galaxy

    Very interesting in the lower wavelengths. What causes this?

    That is .. odd. It looks like a galaxy. SIMBAD says that there is a star right there too. But go a little deeper in SIMBAD, and it turns out to be a star superimposed on a galaxy - NGC 676!

    I've seen that nodularity before. Guess I'll be digging into SED and SIMBAD more often.
