Comet Lulin (C/2007 N3)

Comet Lulin (C/2007 N3)

Look just below the N3 in the image above.

Image made with Nikon D70 on tripod and 24-85mm lens for 2 minutes at ISO 1000.  It’s grainy, but shows a slight teal color and makes it easy to pick out of the stellar field at the top of Scorpius.  And it looks a bit better in person than this image portrays.  It was a blobby patch of diffuse light this morning, so I’m hoping it brightens and gives us something really cool to observe once the Moon wanes a bit more.
