Description
Photo montage shows comet McNaught setting under the Golden Gate Bridge. Individual exposures are approx 10 sec apart. The next to last image shows a mirage or reflection of the comet in the ocean. The last image shows the tail above the horizon. The montage is made from sections of the original frames. Resampling for 640 x 480 overall size has reduced the quality of the images significantly.
