Possible jets from stellar object

  • m57ring by m57ring

    I marked an object near the center of the right edge as an EGO, but I'm not sure what it is. It looks like 2 greenish-blue jets on opposite of a stellar object. They even seem curved, suggesting that the object emitting them is rotating.

    Hi m57ring and welcome to the Zoo,

    I think that qualifies as an EGO ! 😄

    Since we don't know what EGO's actually are, no idea whtat the 'jets' are either.

    This is about the 3rd EGO like this that has popped up in this set so far. it's strange that have not come across any of these in the previous set, unless anyone can advise otherwise.
