Comet McNaught on Australia Day

APOD has a beautiful photograph, taken in Perth, Australia last month. On the left you have a fireworks display in celebration of Australia Day, which is Australia's National Day. On the right you have lightning flashing over the Indian Ocean in the distance. And in the center, small and just showing underneath the clouds is Comet McNaught, which recently passed around the sun.
