More pictures of new - yet unnamed - comet

From Italy and Poland come the latest images of the new comet: The latter one was actually the first reported confirmation of the discovery which was overdue statistically (most comets are discovered by professional sky surveys when they are very faint).

In other news a particularly cool movie of NEA 2007 TU24 "running over" a helpless galaxy has come to my attention as has another website with animations and yet another one. Meanwhile an asteroid with a=0.5 (i.e. residing way inside Earth's orbit) has been discovered (HohmannTransfer has such stuff), possibly in a resonance. And the Boston Globe had a detailled portrait of an amateur astrophotographer.
