Artist's Description

This comet was discovered in 2006 by Scottish-Australian astronomer, Robert McNaught – of of the foremost discoverers of comets and novae (‘new’ stars, flaring briefly from their normal brightness). It is not expected to return to the inner solar system for perhaps 90,000 years.

This image from Jan 21st 2007. 3 film exposures stacked to improve quality. Still twilight, so faint details lost.
