Comet Between Fireworks and Lightning

Incredible panorama of Perth beach, Australia, during the recent Australia Day celebrations. Creating the lightshow is a burst of fireworks, Comet McNaught (tiny, in the centre of the picture) and a nearby thunderstorm. Full-size version here.

    I was actually in Bathurst watching Finding Nemo for free at an open air cinema with my wife and two little girls on Australia Day. But a day or two before did manage to see the comet with the naked at an outdoor observatory near Cowra with the guy pointing out stellar objects in the sky with his pinpoint lazer.

    Nowehere near as bright as in this picture but the tail was much longer and no clouds in the sky to obscure it.
