Lorenzo's photo

Ben Cacace sent me the URL for Lorenzo Comolli's web site:
Lorenzo took the amazing picture below of comet Holmes, the one most of us missed seeing last week because of cloud cover.

Lorenzo writes, charmingly:
Hi, I'm Lorenzo Comolli and I live in Italy. My favourite hobby is Astronomy and I dedicate most of my free time (and of clear nights) to observe, image and discover the wonders of the sky. I'm a member of Gruppo Astronomico Tradatese and of Gruppo Astrofili G. & A. Bernasconi of Saronno (both north of Milan, Italy). In this pages you can find some of my astronomical images, and some articles about astronomical facts.

PS Thank goodness Daylight Saving Time is coming in four days. When the Early Birders met in Central Park at 7:00 a.m. this morning, it was twenty-four minutes before sunrise. Dark!
