No, I'm not asking what something is. Again. But I just came across a tool that could answer that question in future.

Found via someone else's photo on flickr, there's a service/software called Astrometry. I haven't tried it via their web site, but post a patch of sky on their flickr group and their bot will give info about the image. For example, see my test here.

I came across this few months ago, also through someone's photo on Flickr and have always thought of it as a nice lil tool. Seems very popular among Flickr astronomy buffs.
