Comet 17/P Holmes


Another Picture of Comet 17/P Holmes. After more than two weeks since its sudden outburst it is still visible to the naked eye and is an easy astrophotography target from suburban areas.

At the time this picture was taken, Comet Holmes was located near the Perseus OB association, a loose cluster of bright stars. The bright start near the comet is alpha Persei (also called Algenib or Mirfak)
