Two celestial wanderers pass each other - Comets Linear (top left) and Lovejoy (bottom right) have been close to each other over the past few days and i finally managed to catch them together. Both are moving apart now fairly quickly. Its certainly not often you get the chance to catch two bright comets within the same field of view - a once in a lifetime shot in this case!
106mm F5 with STL-11k camera. 2 image mosaic. LRGB. L: 20mins. RGB: 3mins.
Completely off topic. I would like to ask a quesion to those taking those amazing pics. Are there really that many stars? the pic is almost completely saturated with stars!
also i live in the southern hemisphere. Is there any chance for me to view this comet?
Whats the name of the comet that is due this year to quite possibly strike Mars?
There was more talk of it last year but I cant find anything lately on it.
