ScienceCasts: Sunset Comet – YouTube.

A verey nice video about comet PANSTARRS, with some really cool images from space.

Just a note, the CCDs used in most astronomical imaging saturate on bright objects, which causes the vertical stripes in the satellite images.  The comet does not actually have a perfectly straight edge to it’s tail 🙂
