Comet Mc Naught has faded considerably since 2 days ago and moved much further south. Here it is setting over the lights of the southern suburbs of Cape Town. There is still considerable interest in CT, as shown by traffic jams on a nearby high road commonly used by those wanting to see the lights of the city below. The sky in CT today was very dusty due to gale force winds.
