Comets and Bright Star : This timely, telescopic, two panel mosaic spans about 10 full moons across planet Earths predawn skies. Recorded as the year began from Tenerife, Canary Islands, near the top of the frame are the faint coma and tail of Comet Borrelly a first time visitor from the Oort Cloud. Catalinas yellowish dust tail extends below and right. Buffeted by winds and storms from the Sun, the comets complex ion tail sweeps up and toward the right, across most of the field of view. Remarkably, one of the compositions 30 second exposure subframes also caught the trail of a bright meteor, slashing toward the left between comets and bright star. via NASA
