Comet C/2001 Q4

Updated: 5.8.04

This image of Comet C/2001 Q4 (Neat) was taken near its peak intensity (approximately mag 3.3) and was located in the constellation of Monoceros during this capture. As can be seen in this image, the comet is a fast moving object. A total of 32 shots of 1 minute each were assembled for this which was taken from my light polluted driveway (just visible using averted vision).
