Comet Lovejoy

Check out this amazing video taken by International Space Station Commander Dan Burbank of Comet Lovejoy, the sungrazing comet that just last week survived its close encounter with the Sun.

Lovejoy was also visible for us Earth-dwellers, and I found some great pictures on Flickr. This one is a particular favourite, taken just yesterday in rural Argentina by user lrargerich.

Great Comet Lovejoy

And with that I’d like to wish you all lots of love & joy for the festive season!
