Panstarss & NGC 3319

Explanation: In a slow lazy journey through the northern skies, the comet C/2012 K1 PanSTARRS the night of June 2, 2014, she posed for this portrait telescope in northern constellation Ursa Major. Now along the inner part of the solar system, coming from the icy fields of Oort Cloud, accompanied by a broad tail of lightweight particles and by a distorted ion tail that extends to the bottom of this. The intense blue-green foliage of the product from the issue of the nitrogen atoms of carbon and cyanogen, it creates a nice contrast with the yellow color of the star TYC 3011-1917-1 mail to 726 light-years away from Earth. The galaxy NGC 3319 appears at the top left in the field that spans nearly twice the apparent diameter of the full Moon. The spiral galaxy is about 47 million light-years away from us, far beyond the stars of our Milky Way. In comparison, the comet was only 14 light-minutes from our planet.
