So there is a comet passing Earth at the moment. It's called Comet McNaught, or to give it its' real name, C/2006 P1. Terrible name. I heard that it is one of the brightest comets in recorded history and, wow, it was amazing last night. I have never tried to take photos of the sky and below's efforts will show you why. I will try again tonight using some tips from a colleague of mine. My understanding is that the comet is best seen from the Southern Hemisphere, ie where I live, but I would love to know if you can see it in the North.
I tried looking at Haley's comet all those years ago and frankly I am not sure if I saw it or not. It was as big as a star. Did I see a star perhaps? Or maybe the comet. This one however makes no mistake!
It is truly one of the most amazing things I have ever seen.
