This timlapse video is a preview sample compilation featuring Comet Lovejoy, as viewed from Western Australia. This rare sungrazer comet survived its close approach to the sun, to emerge in the dawn sky, with a large tail more than 20 degrees long. The timelapse sequences were recorded by John Goldsmith, on 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27 December 2011. The sequence on 27 December is a collaboration between John Goldmsith and James Athanansou.
