So sometime last week I was reading this thread:
Beautiful New image of Orion Nebula a.k.a. Messier 42
by author 'PerfectPerception'

author 'micpsi' then posted
this link
So I zoomed around and I found something strange, well, more unusual than strange, it was just there begging to be found and no one mentioned it, until now, so here it is in full colour:

And bigger:

You can find it by zooming into the bright part in the middle.

The bright part in the middle is probably a star.


I found this strange, what do you ATS people think?

NASA gives another disclosure tidbit? Space debris in front of the telescope? Nice find, I looked at the original picture and was able to locate the general area of the anomaly right away. It was kind of "obviously" there but hidden.

A baby star system. A protoplanetary disk.

This has been covered in some other threads. If I were more proficient with the computer I would have pasted the links. Anyway it is a very interesting find. The other equally interesting feature of the orion photo are all of the images that are clearly seen in it. Very detailed images of faces and other entities that are depicted. I have mentioned it several times and have had little to no response.

Debris on the lens? Potential black hole or dark matter pocket....

Who knows...the universe is a truly massive beast, to think we know even a tenth of it's secrets would be pure arrogance.

Most likely yes.
Never thought of that way; could I assume the star is within it, and not in the background then?

That would be the case.
We're getting a glimpse of the new star peeking out of dust cloud from which it formed.
