Peace and Lovejoy

Happy New Year!

2011 finished for me with a delightful flourish - the unexpected survival of Comet Lovejoy after passing through its proximity to the sun. In our Southern Christmas skies those who rose early for those few festive days were treated to a gorgeous yuletide display of the fading comet with an incredibly long tail flaring high above the horizon. Glorious.

Here's to more unexpected survivals for 2012. Hope you have a good one.

Wonderful to see a comet! I remember Halley's from around 20 years ago. It was a gorgeous sight too. Happy New Year.
