    Finally decided to join the flickr phenomenon, and I'll kick it off with my photograph of Comet McNaught taken in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, New Zealand.

      Great shot. Is this Mt Edgecumbe near Kawerau?

      Yes, Putauaki, or Mt Edgecumbe. It really helps to give some scale to appreciate just how big this comet was in our skies.

      What a gorgeous scene, one of the best I've seen of McNaught. I got to see it here in the northern hemisphere before it plunged south, and even then it was the brightest comet I've ever seen, around -2.5 magnitude at the time, in bright twilight.
