Comet McNaught above the “City of Lights”, Perth, Western Australia, January 2007. Comet McNaught is one of the most spectacular comets witnessed for several decades. Its exceptional brightness meant that it was even visible in broad daylight, near the Sun. As it’s orbit took the comet away from the Sun, the comet emerged out of the evening twilight to present a spectacular view, even from the centre of cities. Millions of people around the world witnessed this remarkable comet. John Goldsmith.
