The story

I took this image back in 2015. While it might not seem as much, what you see here is a comet (the green ball, designated as C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy) cruising near one of the most famous stars in our sky: Polaris, the Northern Star. The comet does not feature the flashy tail most people expect when they picture a comet, but as a bonus, the image does feature a large amount of dense high galactic latitude nebulae that due to being very faint, it is often neglected in astroimages.
