Fast Facts
Comet McNaught is believed to be the brightest comet visible from Earth in 30 years: six times brighter than Hale-Bopp in 1997, and 100 times brighter than Halley's Comet when it appeared in 1986.

Just passing, the best comet for 32 years
This is the spectacular view of the brightest comet for 32 years. And suitably for a phenomenon once seen as a portent of doom, it was spotted over World's End.
Comet McNaught, which is set to shine brighter than the planet Venus this weekend, was caught on camera at sunset when it is at its best.
