    Default Comet Lulin

    Getting brighter but you have to get up early (or stay up really late) in the U.S. to see it:

    I'm always impressed with long exposure. I'll have to get up early.

    Is it the one with the haze around it? If so it must be comming straight at us. I love the long exposure and appreciate you posting this for us.

    You are getting me interested in this astronomy stuff--I'm a big fan of the Science Channel, and I used to have a telescope as a kid. I think it's cool that you can take such images with your own equipment, and I look forward to seeing more of these.

    Excellent shot. I am just waiting for the comet to come within the brightness range of my poor eyes so I can observe it here.
