The island in the foreground is Green Island. Also the colour of the sunset I believe is due to Australian bush fire smoke drifting over to NZ.

I took that photo when the comet was almost no longer visible (after about an hour of watching and photographing it). The camera picked it up really well, and produced one of the best photos of the evening.

This is my best attempt at capturing the comet. The photo captures fairly well what we saw with the naked eye. The comet is perhaps a little bit brighter in the photo than it was to the naked eye, but otherwise I'd say the photo is a good representation. Taken from Signal Hill in Cape Town, South Africa

Camera: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2. F-Number: F/3.5. Exposure Time: 15 seconds.

This was the first time we have seen the comet, it has been too cloudy or smokey previously. The tail is awsome and extends for more than a full hands width when your arm is out streached.

Photo details:
Panasonic FX3, "Starry Sky" mode, 60 second exposure.

We have a great visual with the naked eye.
I drove some 40km out of town in a west direction to take the pics tonight.
The sight was not that brilliant, but on my way there I took some awsome pictures of the moon and the evening star in semi-cloudy conditions. The tail of the comet was more visible, and when it was dark, the tail filled about 40 degees of the horizon. My camera could unfortunately not extend to that boundaries.

Photo details:
Taken with HP 945, 10s exposure, F/3.1, 61mm focal, iso-100

Taken from our back yard. The tail was not as clear with the naked eye but you could still see that it was pretty impressive.
