The Small Magellanic Cloud, a small satellite galaxy to our own Milky Way galaxy, in the far southern constellation of Tucanae. It also shows globular clusters 47-Tucanae and NGC 362 (much further away); and two large open clusters within the SMC itself, NGC 371 and NGC 346.
Another capture of Comet C/2013 US10 (Catalina) a few degrees above the SMC at the time – and slightly brighter than the previous image I took. The motionof the comet against the stars is obvious over the fourteen minutes of this exposure.
