Comet Lovejoy

The Geminid Meteor Shower, a celestial display caused by the Earth passing through debris from an asteroid, and Comet Lovejoy made fantastic appearances in the night sky this year, and many stargazers captured them with their exceptional astrophotography.

See, and share, more astrophotography in the Geminids and Comet Lovejoy gallery and Astronomy group.
