Could be satellite #trails or an airplane.
It's probably fine. The central source doesn't extend outside the circle, and the object outside the circle doesn't come very far in.
It looks so big and mottled at 1.15 because it's so bright that the detector is saturated.
Yep, SIMBAD says galaxy, too.
Looks like an irregular #galaxy.
Looks like #trails.
That's a really #goodcandidate.
It does look like a #galaxy. That other blob in the K image is probably just noise. It's about the same brightness as the other noise peaks.
That's certainly an odd shape in DSS and 2MASS.
It's an #artifact, probably an asteroid or satellite that streaked by while the telescope was taking the image.
A little tough to tell, but probably good. We know it's hard to tell when there's so much noise in the shorter wavelength images.
So even though the extra light only comes inside the circle in a couple images, I would say this is #multipleobjects.
This is a tough one. When we look at the SED, we want to be sure the light is only coming from one object.
I think this is probably big enough to qualify for #multipleobjects, especially since it shows up in 2MASS, too.
Saturation is like trying to take a picture of the sun with your phone. It washes out the whole image.
The spikes are called diffraction spikes, which are created when the detector reacts to such a bright object.
At the shorter wavelengths, the object is so bright that it's saturating the detector! In WISE it's not as bright.
The object looks big and "lumpy" in the DSS images because it's so bright at those wavelengths that it's saturating the detector!
Wow, that's a good one!
Yep, definitely looks like a galaxy to me!
Even if there was a very faint arm, it would be hard to prove if it's not brighter than the noise level.
It's probably just noise. Notice that the "arm" has about the same level of brightness as all the other static in the image.
Nice catch. That does look like it could be a #galaxy.
The object is so bright in the DSS2 images that it has saturated the detector. That's why it looks so big.
It probably looks so big in DSS2 because it's so bright that it's saturating the detector.
