Thank you for supporting this wiki project
Comet Machholz also known as C/2004 Q2 passed near M45 open cluster performing a great spectacle. Daniel Verschatse caught that moment in the picture above. Faint blueish nebulosity is visible all around Pleiades cluster. The same way two faint tails can be observed emerging from Macholz comet.
