Comet McNaught 2006 P1

McNaught A 10 second shot taken with a standard olympus 5mb cmos camera, showing the Malvern Hills in the distance on the left, Venus to the right of the central tree and the magnificent comet McNaught to the right , with the evening stars beginning to emerge in the twilight.

Extremely bright, at least as bright as Jupiter with binoculars showing off the enormous tail, almost as if there are huge rockets attached to the back . The tail spanned at least 5-6 moon diameters. The image is cropped at 40% of real size to fit on the screen , the inset is at full size.
