A brief exposure of approximately 10 minutes (7m 24s stacked) of ATLAS photobombing the Auriga open cluster of NGC 1893 and its attendant gas shroud of IC 410. Because of M37, M36 and M38 the other spactacles of Auriga are often ignored. Sometimes a passing comet forces us to look away from the obvious (Messier xyz).
