The Magnificent Tail of Comet McNaught

In reply to: comet 'mcnaught' daytime display


"Comet McNaught, estimated at magnitude -2 (minus two), was caught by the comet's discoverer in the above image just after sunset last Friday from Siding Spring Observatory in Australia. Comet McNaught, the brightest comet in decades, is now fading as it moves further into southern skies and away from the Sun and Earth."

That lets me out.

I live in the wrong hemisphere, and am not near enough to the Equator to have a possibility of seeing it after dark.

Comet HaeBopp was easily seen from my back yard. Though very ill, my husband was able to go outside to view it one night.

Other than that, due to the effect from the city lights, that was our sole viewing of celestial events other than eclipses and some fantastic meteor showers.

While growing up, the Northern Lights were sometimes visible, and the Milky Way. No more.

I did see the mIlky Way in 1992 while staying in Yosemite National Park.
