The above photo of the comet, PANSTARRS was taken by Andrew Holinrake (archaeologist and gives great tours round Ness Batter) from the West Mainland of Orkney. The Orkney sky is amazing at night. Layer upon layer of stars. Absolutely stunning. Unfortunately I don't have a decent pair of binoculars so however hard I scanned the sky I couldn't see this. So thanks to Andrew for the photo!
And this photo, taken in Shetland, is stunning too.....showing the comet with the Andromeda galazy...
