"Chasing Lovejoy" ∞ Kilcoy, QLD - Australia by 


Shot on the 27th of Dec 2011, you can still faintly see Comet Lovejoy streaking down the left part of the image. I wish we’d gotten out a few days prior to this when we could see it at it’s peak! Was an incredible sight to behold which no photograph can fully portray. Interestingly this Comet was discovered by a local Brisbane amateur astronomy Terry Lovejoy. Great to know that it’s not just the pro’s with million dollar observatories that make the cool discoveries! :)

Taken in darkish sies just outside Kilcoy in QLD, Australia.

Shot with a Canon 7D and 17-40mm lens.

Shutter: 30 seconds
Aperture: f/4
ISO: 1600

    Beautiful capture!
    I heard about this comet but I was on the wrong side of the world to see it.

  • Cheers Michael! Mate you should’ve been able to spot it from NZ I think, or were you overseas at the time?
