Soooooo Close

Lots of people are examining their images of the "Night of the Smiley Fritz" and M55 to see if they unexpectedly caught comet C/2003 K2 (C/2008 X4) Christensen.

This is Comet Al's image from that night. The comet should have been in the boxed area (the top part is a StarryNight image showing the comets orbit). A bit longer exposure and he might have got it.

Soooo close!

Lots of other people are finding that the comet was just outside the frame. Soooo close!

So keep searching your images folks, you might just find it.
