Viewing Comet C/2006 P1(McNaught) is BREATHTAKING to say the least!!
The best words I can really use to describe seeing comet (McNaught) C/2006 P1 Tuesday evening(NZDT) is SPECTACULAR and awesome beyond the imagination. I now "understand" what some of the excitement, at the passing of this comet, is all about. Wow you guys in the northern hemisphere were right.....THIS BABY LOOKS HUGE!!

To ALL you glpers out there that reside in the southern hemisphere!!.......(weather permitting of course) whatever you do DON'T miss seeing this dazzling event. I had the pleasure of witnessing the most brilliant comet to be seen in New Zealand skies since apparently 1975.

Info for Kiwi viewers here:

From around 9pm last night(Monday NZDT) for approx 15 minutes I was able to witness(naked eye)the brilliant
comet(in the twilight)with its HUGE tail spreading out vertically above it in our sky. The view in the binoculars was even more spectacular and breathtaking to say the least!!
Unfortunately cloud cover soon ended the thrill of the moment. This evening(Jan 17th) cloud cover was way too thick in my part of our country. However tomorrow Thursday evening I'm off to observe this "hopefully" still brilliant comet McNaught. However last night's 15 minutes of unobstructed observation of this comet "giant" has left this Loneranger with a NEW appreciation for things astronomical!!

awesome awesome awesome 1

Way to go The Lone Ranger! Awesome indeed. You easily begin to understand how the Ancients could be struck with awe and dread at such a sight. You should get even better veiws as it heads off into dark skies during the next couple of days.

Having followed this baby for some time from the Northern hemishere I'm struck by how much curve there is in the tail now. A real classic comet with all the cometiness of ledgend.

Hey there KY6.....yep I saw a pic from Aussie with that curve in Comet McNaught's tail. I posted this thread because I was pretty much speechless when I saw this comet's viewable size with my own eyes...without the aid of binoculars or telescope. Comet McNaught is visible in New Zealand Skies this month in the daytime [link to www.rasnz.org.nz] but more significantly at present when the sun goes below the horizon, the view is astonishing Imho. The BRILLIANCE of the Comet head and the size of its TAIL at present leaves one BREATHLESS!!

I had hoped to hear from other Kiwis as to tonight's(NZDT) observations of Comet McNaught.....but they must be all in bed :horse laug:!!

Hoping tonight(Thursday) to take my digital camera with me to take so vid(as evening sky is expected to be clear) of this comet event. Didn't take it with me on Tuesday....DAMN!!

Here's a composite, contrast enhanced greyscale I made of an old moon pic and the comet on the 10th Jan to show up the tail size. At that time it stretched to about 4 moon diameters or 2 deg.

[link to frogesque.com]

You will probably get better pics with a still camera, preferably on a tripod and setting the shutter release to timer than trying to take hand held vid. Try everthing though and experiment with exposure settings.

Can you guys still observe it from your northern hemisphere location, in England then? If not that would be a pity because this comet McNaught(C2006 P1) is quite something to behold.

Nup, it's below the ecliptic (sun's aparent path across the sky )and not bright enough to be seen in daylight now. I tried eyballin' yesterday with a welder's mask, eclipse glasses and naked eye. I also took pics and not a thing showed so it's over to youse guys below the equator.

All we can do is say thanks for the memory.

Re: Viewing Comet C/2006 P1(McNaught) is BREATHTAKING to say the least!!
I was wondering what people intuitively felt when actually viewing the comet. I was AWED! I was amazed at the size of it. I had seen photos, but they didn't do it justice. Our initial view of it was between two snow covered mountain tops with a vanilla/peach sherbet sky background. It was one of those moments in life you never forget. But I will honestly tell you, after the awe, the shock wave lapped at my being. Intuitively I felt that this comet is far more than is being revealed. I actually had to recline for a bit after the shock factor ensued. My family viewed it the next morning for quite a long time and I was more acclimated to the emotions perpetuated by the celestial visitor. I am looking at threads about the comet to find the intuitive statements of those who have actually viewed it. I intuitively feel that it is the precursor to a multitude of events we've been expecting since we entered this paradigm. Maybe I'm relieved that the grand finale presentation is unfolding. I like stories with happy endings. Then I go choose a book that builds on the knowledge gained in the previous one. It's not the end; it's just the conclusion of another interesting chapter in the human/earth paradigm.

Yep amazing pic again, KY6. I must confess I did not take too much notice of this comet until I witnessed it for myself with the naked eye. Seeing it through a screen on the computer etc is one thing.....but as a LIVE object... well enough said!! Sorta like witnessing a total solar eclipse.....being there watching is EVERYTHING. :excited:

BINGO!! aka ON THE MONEY!!

Totally agreed....you said exactly how I felt on Tuesday Night(NZDT). One is left both in AWE and in a state "trepidation"(fear & anxiety) at the same moment.
The view I had of Comet McNaught was at the time of twilight and it looked like some HUGE fiery MONSTER in the sky out of some "doomsday" movie. Exaggeration??.....no way..not when your own eyes see it!!

I think I was watching that one "live"(lol) on the net......but it was definitely nothing as dramatic(as I remember) as witnessing it for yourself when we had a total solar eclipse here in New Zealand many years ago.

Man you could just imagine how some of the ancient peoples would have been "spooked" by one of those happenings.

Yep, it's the being there and witnessing for yourself. I get exactly the same feelings when we are lucky enough to have an aurora. It's the whole scale and magnificience that gets you and makes you realise just how big the universe is and how tiny we are.

Glad you are enjoying the comet. Been a good while since we had a bright one and like the eclipse, it's always something to tell your kids later - I was there!!!

well, ive seen a meteor that was like a fireball that went from one side of the sky to the other with a massive orange tail.
That was probably more spectacular but over in about 10-15 secs.

Hale bop was pretty cool also.
Total solar eclipse in 1999 was also pretty cool.
Venus traveling infront of the sun, and the big sunspots of 2001 looked good when projected on to white paper thru my telescope.

That's a pretty darn good little list there. Especially
the meteor experience. From what I understand not TOO many get to witness firsthand the meteor event you just described. Right place...right time. Excellent stuff.

true on your side, but if only you saw the great comets of 96 and 97.. Hyakutake and Hale Bopp... you would have died. Mcnaught is okay, but compared to the other two Northern hem comets back then, all i can say is those two comets spoiled the hell off me.
