    There are no planets in these images, though there may be asteroids. It is a pair of distant galaxies.

    No - two galaxies. Looks like a cluster!

    Nope! That is a very distant galaxy (or pair of galaxies). Thanks for classifying!

    How can I tell the difference between a gravitational field of light bending around an object and the light coming from the object itself?
