Comet Lovejoy from the VLT, Chile


Here’s a little time-lapse quickie footage of the comet that recently grazed the freakin’ Sun and survived. Note the frikin’ laser pointed skyward, to serve as an artificial guide star for the observatory. This is a really nice take on the well-noted celestial display!
