Lovejoy Diary Day 4

It's 4:15 local time on upthe. Mornington Peninsula, the tail of comet C/2011 W3 Lovejoy stretches anastonishing 15 degress above the horizon. At this relative dark site it's like a pale searchlight piercing the heart of Centaurus.

A bit frudtrating as a) there is a bright navigation light I can't block out and b) I can't post any photos, I can only post via mobile phone.

Still, the comet tail is magnificent, and will be great on christmas morning.
