    Remarkable comet Garradd (C2009/P1) has come to be known for two distinctive tails. From the perspective of earthbound comet watchers the tails are visible on opposite sides of its greenish coma. Seen here in a telescopic view, the recognizable dust tail fans out to the right, trailing the comet nucleus in its orbit. Streaming away from the sunward direction, a familiar bluish ion tail sweeps to the left. But the comet also seems to have, at least temporarily, sprouted a second ion tail recorded in this image from February 24. Other comet imagers have recently captured changing structures in Garradd's ion tail created as the plasma is buffeted by the magnetic fields in the solar wind. Now moving more quickly through northern skies, on March 5th comet Garradd will reach its closest approach to planet Earth, about 10.5 light-minutes distant.

    The spiral galaxy of Galaxy NG1300 lies 70 million lightyears away from Earth on the Eridanus constellation. Its one of the largest photos ever made by the Hubble telescope.

    This one might possibly be my favorite so far.

    I've found and looked at NGC1300, its a good sprial galaxy, which you can see clearly.


    Centaurus A, the closest galaxy towards our own on a distance of 60000 lightyears.

    It's a further away that 60k light years :D Andromeda is the closest galaxy (2.6mill light years) although there are dwarf-galaxies like the Large Magellenic Cloud which is 160k ly away.

    Way too far to drive. ;D
