    Fascinating arc that seems to be connected with the nearby spiral galaxy. Assume not a gravity lens though.

    Nope, not a lens. I'd go for disturbed edge on. Probably interacting with the spiral

    I love how you are talking about the second most beautyful thing in this picture, what a nice edge on view. some dustlanes there.

    The three blue dots in an arc at a little past three o'clock and the fourth one toward the center look like a lensed object!

    Do you suppose that the lens is invisible?

    I think @philip.cross has it right - not a lens, but an intriguing object nonetheless. Collecting as a convincing imposter! 😃

    this arc is around nothing nearby, but it might be part of the massive galaxy at the left side
