Anyone in the southern hemisphere happen to see the comet? I guess you guys got the real show!

I'm at 45 N, so I only had a few days to see it and it was so low in the horizon that I couldn't get even a glimpse...I will just have to settle for APOD.

But anyway, it sure was a beautiful comet.

Not a comet picture, but an especially beautiful one none the less! It was taken in the Alborz Mountain Range in northern Iran.

Beautiful pics locally pwned & Monty.

I've always loved that 'Astronomy Picture of the Day' site, but I haven't been there in a while. Thanks for that little reminder! :thumbsup:
