Description
Comet C/2016 N4 Master is in the foreground glow of the western region of M31 as it approaches Galaxy M110 a satellite galaxy of M31. Unfortunately it was cloudy the next night when the comet passed close to the background Galaxy M110. The inset attempts to show the comet a little better.
