Nebula Eats Comet. Comet Hartley 103P passes within a degree of the Pac Man nebula, NGC 281 on October, 1, 2010. With the problem of light pollution at my location, I used a UHC filter to darken the sky and enhance the nebula and comet. The faint blue-green glow of the comet contrasts nicely with the red hydrogen clouds in the nebula.
