C/2020 M3 (ATLAS) @ 2020 December 9, 06:18 UT

Comet C/2020 M3 (ATLAS) imaged on December 9, 2020 while passing angularly close to emission nebula IC 410, also called the Tadpole Nebula because of their plumes of gas and dust that resemble these cute batracians (in the upper left of the image). The comet has a very faint green coma which envelops a short tail of dust.
