What is it? Old image I found. What is it? Is it real? The guys on AZ-Observing think it's lens flare. But the bright star doesn't show up in Stellarium. The two to the upper right of the bright center object are HIP 81754 and HIP 81632 according to Astrometry.net. So I'm still puzzled.
And this is where I think it is on Stellarium's star map.
One of the guys on AZ-Observing figured it out. That bright "star" is Saturn! And that explains the ring shaped reflection just to the left of it. I have to remember that static star maps don't show those "wanderers" unless you have the correct date entered.
