If you want to be inspired and transported to a whole other (actually our) universe, check out this timelapse video of comets in the Southern Sky as filmed from Victoria, Australia. It’s beautiful and awe-inspiring and will perhaps get your creativity going too.
“What you can see in Melbourne’s skies: Two gas giants are the stand-out planets this month. Jupiter is bright in the evening sky, while Saturn lights up the morning. Low to the east in the morning twilight Venus disappears as Mercury returns to the sky.
Comet Lemmon is low in the south-west at sunset or low in the south-east at sunrise. From a dark location, it may be faintly visible to the naked eye. It is certainly interesting through binoculars or small telescopes. The comet has a greenish glow, as the Sun is making the comet’s carbon gas (or C2 gas) fluoresce. The comet may brighten even a little more as it moves towards perihelion (closest to the Sun) on the 24th.
Comet PANSTARRS can also be found towards the south at sunset during the first week of the month. Although Comet PANSTARRS is a little brighter than Comet Lemmon, the twilight sky makes it also hard to see. Comet PANSTARRS reaches perihelion on the 10th, when it will move into the northern hemisphere and could display the classic comet double tail; one of dust and gas, and the other made of charged particles that glow blue. ” Skynotes, Melbourne Planetarium
