Unprecedented View of Comet Lovejoy

International Space Station Commander Dan Burbank captured spectacular imagery of Comet Lovejoy from about 240 miles above the Earth’s horizon on Wednesday, Dec. 21. Burbank described seeing the comet two nights ago as “the most amazing thing I have ever seen in space,” in an interview with WDIV-TV in Detroit. Last night he captured hundreds of still images of the comet.
