What is this?

    An extremely diffuse disk, or are those jets of barely-luminescent dust on the bottom-left to top-right diagonal?

    Good question. Hard to say for sure one way or the other without additional data. When we have the 'Examine' tool to look in different wavelengths up and working (in a couple days), it'll be quite interesting to look at this object and see if the color changes with radius out through the diffuse area.
