Description
Comet Lovejoy and the Little Dumbbell were nearly equidistant from 4th-magnitude Phi Persei on February 16th. However, the comet was relatively nearby at only one AU away, while Phi Persei is 700ly, and 10.1-magnitude M-76 is far out at 2,500ly. (Sorry about the "tag." Comet Lovejoy C2014 Q2 was not in the "Tags" dropdown menu)
