Wow! Comet Lovejoy Time Lapse from the ISS
Comet Lovejoy is a sungrazing comet that recently passed VERY close to the Sun. Many astronomers thought it would burn up on this passage, but it survived and is now a nice morning comet for the southern hemisphere.
And for astronauts on the ISS who captured this amazing video!
Watch all the lightning as before the comet rises over the horizon followed by the blinding dawn. It is much easier to get this from space when you don’t have the brightening twilight you get on Earth. You can even see the layers of Earth’s atmosphere…stunning!
