McNaught Continues to Dazzle

Wow. Astronomy Picture of the Day has a beautiful shot of Comet McNaught as seen from the Southern Hemisphere.

I didn't have a tripod along, so my pix of McNaught are pretty awful by comparison. Still, here's proof that my kids and I did in fact see the comet. (If you look exceedingly carefully, in the exact center of the second image, you'll find the comet head. Honest.)
