Excellent find OP. Most on ats it would seem would rather run their mouths about political horse# right now and this stuff is a throwback to what I love; Thank you for that.

S&f, nice find. That would be interesting to add to some rpg and mmorpg games, such as the background graphics in Eve.

It's an internal reflection of the telescope's mirror, created by the bright star seen near that "object".

By the way, that website recreates what's been available for years at Sky-Map.org albeit with newer data from GLEAM.

Best guess would be a lens flare from the bright star above it. Or a sweet alien mega structure. Sigh....but probably the former. Looks really cool though.


Can you get lens flare with electromagnetic frequencies?

Cool OP, brings to mind not seeing the forest for the trees, or in this case....., yeah, that's it.

Yes, because visible light is electromagnetic frequencies in the range between 430–770 THz.
