Searching through layers of shadowed space to locate a moving 4th magnitude object is no easy task.
My camera lens peered through a thinly-shadowed atmosphere of the Earth… aperture and time pushing aside clouds and cosmic objects that played hide-and-go-seek with the Lovejoy Comet.
Chilled fingers, failed photos, and shadowed by doubt were not reasons to quit!!!
Determination and a Lovejoy Comet map proved to be keys to success.
Shadowed in Outer Space… orbiting between constellations I now can find and name… is the Lovejoy Comet.
Clad in dusty, greenish glow… caused by ionized molecules of cyanogen and diatomic carbon.
Lovejoy gave itself away- no longer shadowed in outer space!
