I'd really like to see a few more folks here coming up with some Irish Firsts' :wink:

We should have a prize for the first Irish animation of this comet.... That'd get the competition going :D

Anyhow, seeing as you are buttering me up, I'll give it a lash :D

Cheers

Dave

I knew you couldnt resist the challenge Dave :D ..no better man for the job i say and you have certainly proved yourself lately with your minor planet work!

As a comet lover myself i would be delighted to see a few images of this comet and future comets from Ireland...oops..and i forgot to metion..a comet discovery would also be the icing on the cake :D

Lovely image, and yet another green comet, we had a number of those 2 or so years back, or are they all green?

The green is due to Cynagen (dont think i spelt that correct) . Alot of gassy comets emit either blue or green colours when close to the sun. Dusty comets are manily white/gold or even red!

One of the great comets in historical records was blood red in colour and appearently a frightening sight as it took up much of the sky and described as looking like a dragon..would love to see one of those babies!
