GSC 00288 00235 not a star ?

Forums Variable Stars SN 2021hiz in UGC 7513 (Virgo) GSC 00288 00235 not a star ?

Looking at the details for the object in the GSC, I see it is classed as 3 – “non stellar”
so perhaps GSC 00288 00235 was detected in GSC as an area  including the bright knots in the galaxy directly above it with an integrated brightness of mag 12?
