Bright green dot - what is it?

    What is that bright green dot on the lower right?
    It seems way brighter and sharper than any of the "green knots" I got to see ...

    My best guess is that that's a place where a star has already been born, and so the dust is being heated from inside. It would show up brightly in the green band of our images.
