Week Without Setting

Here's Comet Lovejoy, which is giving a treat to those Orcadians prepared to look up, for its setting is in a constant latitude throughout the rest of the week. Links and explanations are available at The Orcadian. The photograph is by Dan Burbank and was taken back in December 2011. The comet was discovered by the Australian astronomer, Terry Lovejoy, a month previously.
