The greenish object is the so-called “Hanny’s Voorwerp”. It was named so because it was discovered by amateur astronomer and Dutch schoolteacher Hanny van Arkel. The name translates to Hanny’s object. Why this region of space behaves this way is still unknown, although some hypotheses exist.
More interestingly, Hanny took her “fame” from this discovery and tried to use it to do her bit to popularize science.
