We trained our cameras to the sky on New Year’s Eve… hoped to catch a glimpse of Lovejoy comet. I had no luck on this photo-shoot, but learned where to look. It was also some practice photographing the night sky. If anyone has tips for taking pictures of comets- I would love to hear your tips 🙂
Lovejoy Comet will be in the Orion- Taurus neighborhoods through January 19th. The reports say that it will be bright enough to see with the naked eye, especially during its closest approach to Earth on January 15, 2015. It comes from the edge of the solar system and is a long period comet from the Oort cloud. Just how long is Lovejoy’s incredibly lengthy orbit? Let’s just say… if you miss seeing it this month, the wait for a return spotting will be in about 8,000 years!!!
