Comet McNaught Seen Between Fireworks and Lightning

Comet Between Fireworks and Lightning

The amazing picture above cropped from the award-winning Finnish photographer Antti Kemppainen's original photo shows a faraway comet clearly seen between the nearby festival fireworks and lightning. From APOD

On January 26, 2007 people from Perth, Australia gathered on a local beach to watch a sky light up with delights near and far. Nearby, fireworks exploded as part of Australia Day celebrations. On the far right, lightning from a thunderstorm flashed in the distance. Near the image center, though, seen through clouds, was the most unusual sight of all: Comet McNaught. The photogenic comet was so bright that it even remained visible though the din of Earthly flashes. The above image is actually a three photograph panorama digitally processed to reduce red reflections from the exploding firework.
