We had some clear days about a week ago. I was trying to find the current comet, Lulin, but could not quite know where to find it. NASA wrote to look for it before sunrise, but I did my search in the evening. Once I directed my camera to a point where I seemed to see it through the binoculars. I zoomed the camera but as it was on a tripod and directed to the part of the sky where I thought it was, I could not see the viewfinder. Afterwards, I saw something strange in the camera, with a blue centre. No other stars. When I transfer the photos into my computer, I might send it to NASA to see what they say.It is supposed to be closest to the earth tomorrow, but we have had snowfall and cloudy skies the whole week.
