Represented By: David Malin


Region: Australia and Pacific

Site: Western Australia - Australia

Date: 2007 January 19

McNaught (2006 P1), the Great Comet of 2007 and the brightest in 40 years, sets behind the Chiro Observatory in Western Australia. The McNaught's head is already under the horizon in this dramatic view, while the comet's expanded tail is still visible like fan-shape bizarre lights in the sky. Akira Fujii/David Malin Images
