I am loving these Lovejoy submissions.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.

Lovejoy Timelapse

Click to play embedded YouTube video.
This is a quick timelapse of Comet Lovejoy from 9 frames taken morning of December 29 from Coonabarabran, NSW, Australia. Each frame is a 2 mins luminance tracked on the comet fast proper motion. It is interesting to see as the comet has almost no core. Total 9 frames from 04:10 am with the comet being only 13 degrees above the horizon.
