Capturing a Comet Between Fireworks and Lightning [Photo]

Comet, fireworks and lightning simultaneously over Perth, Australia


In early 2007, a Perth photographer captured the above image where:

… 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.

Simply. Stunning. Don't miss the high res version courtesy of (who else?) NASA.
