Binocular comet Lovejoy - 16.2.2015 at 20.44 - 16.2.2015 at 21.34 Kirkkonummi Observation number 33729

Visibility III / V

Samuli Vuorinen, Kirkkonummen komeetta

I photographed the Comet for a while in the early evening while a lot of star-screen guests roared at the observation site. Even such a short animation shows a surprising amount of life in the comet's tail!

The image can also be found on Astrobin .

Fantastinen tuo animaatio. Hirveän hyvin demoaa miten aktiivinen tämän komeetan pyrstö on ainakin ajoittain ollut.

On kyllä mahtava animaatio, nyt vain pidempää tekemään!

Kiitos! Olisi tosiaan pitänyt malttaa kuvata komeettaa vähän pidempäänkin. Yritän tätä uudestaan jahka kelit sallivat.
