Feathery comet tail

Comet McNaught’s feathery tail, visible mainly after sunset in the Southern hemisphere, but also reported visible low on the western horizon after sunset in the Northern Hemisphere. One of the brightest comets ever, McNaught is fading as it speeds away toward the outer solar system/image by Siding Spring Observatory near Coonabarabran, Australia
