Six days of Comet Lovejoy


Six days of Comet Lovejoy

Following my attempts to photograph Comet Lovejoy before Christmas, I also managed to record some timelapse sequences over six consecutive mornings after Christmas. All this while I was Summer Camp Director for Camp Cooinda on the Gippsland Lakes! The first clip is on a tracking mount. All of the others are on a fixed tripod. The fading of the comet as it moves south each night is clearly visible. The bright light is the navigation mark at Point Turner at the end of Banksia Peninsula.


That was so beautiful. I had no idea heaven was here, right here on earth. Thank you for the experience : )

I can't find the right words ... beautiful, great, fantastic ... . This is so much better than a still picture.
