    Sorry I see many objects in the top left, Can you describe it more please?

    A quasar looks like a bright star, and is usually blue, though it can be pink, green, yellow, orange and red.

    When looking for a lensed quasar, there are two or more stars arranged around a galaxy. They may be different "sizes" but they must always be the same colour.

    thanks for detailed comment. I acknowledge there should be more than one (I had just been referring to one that is the bright blue one near to red object)
