Spiral Galaxy

  • Barbalbero by Barbalbero

    Hi to all.
    I have just one question, thanks in advance for the reply.
    In this set of images, we can clearly observe a very nice spiral galaxy. I have just one doubt: some bright spots we see between its arms are stars between the galaxy and us or they can be Supernovae explosions of galaxy's stars? If they are Supernovae, is it possible to be acknowledged for their discoveries if they were not observed before?
    Thanks again for everything

    They are almost certainly field stars, which overlap prospectively. Supernovae would not be so obvious and statistically (almost) always individual.
