Comet 17P/Holmes Animation

November 2nd, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Each night, starting on Halloween, I’ve been taking photos of the patch of sky containing comet Holmes. I’m using the photos to create an animated GIF which shows the comet’s movement across the sky over a period of time. Come back often – I’ll be updating the picture almost every day until I can no longer see the comet.
