Lovejoy Reflections
Astrophotographer Colin Legg took this photo of the sungrazing Comet Lovejoy on December 21, 2011. He wrote: "Not getting much sleep but hey who needs sleep?! Had another lovely view of the comet last night wandering the shore of the Estuary. It's quite unique down there. The Perth and Mandurah sky domes light up the northern half of the sky, while the east and south east are pitch black (except for a couple of small towns). The north glow is enough to walk by once dark adapted. Anyway, while wandering I came across a small embayment with still water and nice reflections of the comet."
