Comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann 3

Wow! Via Tom's blog I just had a look at a movie created from Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images of comet 73P. The movie is pretty spectacular and really does show the bits of the comet forming a trail as it breaks up. To have a look for the comet yourself, check out Ian's directions.
