I spend too much time on the computer and I am a master of collecting useless information. I always surprise my family with something or other that means nothing but sure peps up the conversation. So.... why wasn't I told about this comet ? I mean, I love these sorts of things. I only found out about it by reading an Australian quilting list. So of course I had to research it. How did it arrive without me knowing? I looked last night but there was too many clouds but tonight - WOW! Our house faces west from the top of a hill so once I found it it was so clear. The moon is just a little slither too and was setting, and with Venus ( evening star) shining as well it was magical. My daughter was rapt - she says she has been wishing to see a comet since she saw a shooting star two years ago. I wanted to try to put a photo in here - I used the tripod but the camera just doesn't have the power to get a good shot.
This is a link ( with more links) to an Australian blog which shows photos.
All I can say is - why wasn't I told?
