Comet hunting

The problem with clear nights, they are cold nights.  But not to be deterred I took my best chance to see Comet Lovejoy.

I got a double reward because not only did I finally find the comet, I also saw a very bright meteor with a tail of its own.

The comet took binoculars and even after I found it I could not see with naked eye as it is too fuzzy, but it was worth getting dressed up and freezing.  Still, too cold to be bothered setting up a telescope.

Here’s my January astronomy outfit.
