    Struggling to make this one out - is that an arm at 9 o'clock or an arc via lensing... there's a bit of green 'noise' which seems to arc too

    strange. arm: not sure. circle looks like thermal noise, as you say, but it circular.

    I wonder if the arm is a AGN irradiated cloud, where the galactic jet hits a wayward arm #voorwerpje

    possibly, I wondered if something had fed the galaxy to make it look like an arm. The fact the noise seemed circular seemed peculiar though
