Comet McNaught had me chewing my nails! Every evening our western skies at Leeudoringstad, South Africa had been covered under thick clouds allowing only for the very opportunistic like Andrid to sneak in a capture. I had my chance last night when the clouds opened up a small window... The quality may not be on standard, I really stretched my glass, lol.

Thank you for commenting and visits to the "Troublesome Threesome".

Be sure to check the following uploads from jif3d and Andrid as they contain more info which I did not duplicate:

This is amazing! You are so fortunate to have seen and photographed it! Every time we have an epic event in the skies here it seems Mother Nature screws with the view. This must have been so exciting to witness and your photograph is just as exciting to see.
