Bode's Galaxies: A Celestial Pairing
A subtle image I captured of Bode's Galaxies (M81 & M82) on Saturday, January 17, 2015 from Frosty Drew Observatory in Charlestown, Rhode Island, USA. Messier 82 (The Cigar Galaxy) is at the left with Messier 81 at the right. M82 hosted the fabulous supernova SN 2014j in January 2014. I shot this after an excellent session with Comet C/2014 Q2 Lovejoy!
