Another odd blue structure - another SN remnant?

A few people have noted that this looks a little odd (left side half way up). Could it be a planetary nebula or super nova remnant like this one?

SIMBAD suggests it might be XMMM31 J004253.5+412552 -- SuperNova Remnant.

Yes, indeed it is SNR,also at NED: MLA 0620 http://ned.ipac.caltech.edu/cgi-bin/nph-objsearch?objname=MLA+0620&extend=no

Nice catch :)

With a much snappier name of MLA 0620!! Well that's 2 we've found. Might there be more...?

XMMM31 J004253.5+412552 is the same object as MLA 0620 ( This object has 12 different ID names in summary )

I wonder how many other SNR we will be able to find. I am pretty sure that this one is not the last :)

Should be straightforward to cross-reference catalogs of SNR with "things people ID'd as galaxies with large angular sizes"...

Perhaps http://talk.andromedaproject.org/objects/AAP00001t3 and http://talk.andromedaproject.org/objects/AAP0000a9y should be cross-referenced? Same object, different number, one has a synthetic cluster added.

I can't merge the threads but at least we have the original find referenced here. Thanks!
