Stunning Comet McNaught Photo

Sometimes I’ll see a photo that just blows me away! This is a very good example. I wish I could take a photo like this but I really don’t see how it could ever happen given my impatience and lack of technical knowledge.

I found it on the Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) website for February 7th and it was taken in Perth, Australia on January 26th by Antti Kemppainen. It shows a collection of people on a beach looking out at three things: fireworks, comet McNaught and a thunderstorm. It was made up of three seperate pictures but the combined digitally edited effect is quite stunning.

This photo is best viewed large, so please click on either it or the link to the APOD site to get a better look.
