On January 2, 2006, Grzegorz Pojmanski noticed a 12th-magnitude comet on a sky-survey image taken the day before in Chile. The comet was in the constellation Indus in the far southern sky. But now, Comet Pojmanski is glowing at 5th magnitude low in the east before dawn for observers at mid-northern latitudes. . . . M101: A Hubble Mosaic February 27, 2006 | NASA and the European Space Agency have released one of the the largest and most detailed photos ever taken of a spiral galaxy beyond the Milky Way. The image shows the glorious face-on spiral M101, located 25 million light-years from Earth in Ursa Major off the handle of the Big Dipper. The image is a mosaic of 51 Hubble Space Telescope frames and several ground-based shots. . . .
