COMET WHOA!!!

I saw this amazing comet last night from the cockpit! Turns out its name is McNaught, and it looks like a baseball with a long, cartoonish tail; this tail is probably thousands and thousands of miles long! It was huge and absolutely stunning. Along the same horizon I could see Venus, smaller and less dazzling (but still pretty striking). So cool!
