Comet Lovejoy over Kitchener Ontario

Nothing fancy but this is a Comet #Lovejoy image I took from #Kitchener, Ontario, during the evening of Jan 16th 2015 @ -15C! Cold! 29min total. Light pollution makes capturing the tail hard. The artificial lights wash out the night sky and make capturing faint details difficult. The ion tail is faintly visible though. Was fun to do anyhow. Lovejoy is now passing the well known Pleiades star cluster (M45). This comet won’t be back our way for an estimated 8000 years! #CometLovejoy
