Messier object 111, or M111, was found and catalogued by the French astronomer Charles Messier, and was recently found in his notes. Before its discovery, it was believed that Messier had only marked 110 unidentified objects-- now identified as nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters-- and it was slightly flush against M110, or NGC 205, which is a dwarf ecliptical galaxy found near Andromeda.
Yes, the above passage was scifi xD The catalouging should be correct, though. Star names and catalogues confuse me; in my astronomy classes, all we know is that we're the weird kids that are watched in the hallways by other students as we conduct weird experiments involving parallax and the HR Diagram, among other things. XD
