The story

Here’s an image I captured on December 2015, where we can see Comet C/2013 US10, Catalina, as if it was doing an approach to M101, also known as the Pinwheel Galaxy. In reality, they’re about 21 million light-years away between each other, and while the comet is just a modestly sized icy ball, M101 has a diameter of 170,000 light-years.
