REgarding the quality. one thing that came to mind was that WE have somewhat detailed and colored pics of the earliest part of the universe, which is farther away than this object and is about 50 times better quality and yet this pic is in black and white and grainy.
Might have something to do with them filtering it because of the 21 magnitude. That or they don't want to show us what it really is.

Well, it could be a Deep Space Ship dropping out of hyperspace then powering up and jumping back into hyperspace, which would explain why the object vanished.
Although the combination of H
and Na i consistently fits three of the observed features,
the strong feature at 5360 °A and the weaker feature at
6330°A are left unexplained. No other narrowband emission
or absorption lines are detected. The spacing of the
five absorption features is inconsistent with periodicity
in energy, as might be expected for cyclotron harmonics.
Oddly, the features are nearly (but not exactly) periodic
Although the symmetry of the lightcurve (Fig. 2) suggests
that the transient is a microlensing event, this interpretation
is unlikely. The lightcurve is dramatically
broader than the theoretical lightcurve for microlensing
of a point source by a single lens (Paczynski 1986). The
typical lightcurve FWHM of high-magnification (peak
magnification 300) microlensing events is on the order
of a few hours (e.g., Abe et al. 2004; Dong et al. 2006)
whereas the transient’s lightcurve FWHM is 100 days
with a peak magnification 3 lower limit of 120. Also,
the color evolves a small but significant amount over the
lightcurve, particularly between epochs eight and nine.
Some of these difficulties can be overcome if we assume
the source is resolved; this can both change the shape
of the lightcurve and allow for color variation as different
source regions are differentially magnified. However,
this typically results in a lower peak magnification. Finally,
microlensing would still not explain the mysterious
