Comet Lemmon Seen in New Zealand
Astrophotographer John Drummond sent in his photo of Comet Lemmon taken on Jan. 23, 2013. He writes: "Comet Lemmon has been putting on a beaut show for us observers south of the equator. It’s been a joy to watch it slide through Crux with binoculars – it was the hit at our summer national star party! A tail isn't obvious – but hints of one are picked up photographically. It’s a nice, 'bright' large blob in telescopes. Over time it will head north and will be too far north for us New Zealanders to see it from about the end of May 2013."
