Triangulum Galaxy

“Hubble takes gigantic image of the Triangulum Galaxy”: https://www.spacetelescope.org/news/heic1901.

“The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured the most detailed image yet of a close neighbour of the Milky Way — the Triangulum Galaxy, a spiral galaxy located at a distance of only three million light-years. This panoramic survey of the third-largest galaxy in our Local Group of galaxies provides a mesmerising view of the 40 billion stars that make up one of the most distant objects visible to the naked eye.”

One of those 40 billion stars, of course, is host to the Kats’ homeworld, Katoikia :D.
