Description19.5 magnitude comet P/2015 M2 Panstarrs passing 13.5 magnitude spiral barred galaxy NGC 7300 and 14 magnitude spiral galaxy NGC 7298. As usual, it is hard to bring out the spiral arms of the bright galaxies and still show the comet very well, so the inset shows 30 minutes in the life of the comet.
