Oh, a gas giant, with one of its moon's rings in display.

ThirdRock,
The whole thing looks like it's near the Small Magellanic Cloud.
On the horizon just a sun rises or falls, probably a K or an M star.
The two objects close together could be two planets relatively close to the star, or two stars, farther away. Either in the same system, not very large, or two giant stars farther away.
On the right, is the edge of the Milky Way.





Don't forget to look here.

I suppose you're right.

And I believe that the two objects close together, could be also moons.

I don't think so because we would be looking at their night sides. Far more likely they're planets orbiting close to the parent star or other stars.

Dwarf moons can be quite bright.



It could also be a close dwarf moon and a planet.

JackDole, you are absolutely correct!

With what? I've made various guesses. Which of them was right?

It is not your turn. If you get the previous picture correct, then you may post yours. Then the cycle continues. It is currently JackDole's turn

Hornblower,
I like to solve puzzles, but I can not very well create own puzzles. dry
Also, I'm not a discoverer. I could show only some of my self-made things, and that would not be fair. wink
I give the task therefore on to you!

Also, this could literally be anywhere in the universe
