Comet McNaught

I remember vividly what a delight it was to drive home january 2007: not only is driving home from work per se a delight, but at that time Comet McNaught was lighting up the southern sky, and the twilight over North Otago made it an especially beautiful experience.

This amazing picture was shot by the extremely talented Tony Travaglia (a nice gallery of his pictures is here), member of the RASNZ and all around good guy.

Don’t anybody tell me that astronmy is boring.
