Caption: Awesome night seeing the Mc Naught Comet!! The most spectacular comet in 40 years, named after the Australian astronomer who discovered it, will streak through the southern hemisphere over the next month. Clear skies permitting, McNaught's Comet will reveal itself against the western horizon at sunset, beginning tomorrow. Australian National University (ANU) astronomer Robert McNaught discovered the comet on August 7 last year using the Uppsala Schmidt telescope at Siding Spring Observatory near Coonabarabran, in central western NSW. It has already appeared in the northern hemisphere
