So I was examining this picture and I noticed that 2 particles appear in an area outside of the center and have no connection with other particles. So I was wondering if anyone can help me ? Why are those particles appear out of nowhere it maybe insignificant but I am really curious. Thank you for your time.

These are usually "noise" tracks formed by randomly connecting hits (the little dots all over the tracker) that happen to line up (on a curve).
You can ignore them. And we are hoping you folks will be better at ignoring them than our algorithms! 😃
