This problem is typical of an object wrongly processed and introduced in a catalog with RA=0, DEC=0, MAG=0

But I cannot reproduce the problem by using the standard stars catalog.

Can you try to identify where it come from.
First click on the object and open the detail information to note the catalog.
If it is not identifiable this way try to disable your stars catalogs one by one until the object disappear.

Patrick: Yo were correct. This appears to be a surious "star" in the URAT 1 catalog.

Geoff, I not have this error with my URAT-1.
Can you check your data and Catgen parameters and re-run Catgen.

Please re-open this issue if I need to change something in the URAT-1 Catgen instruction to avoid this problem.
