This is my first decent comet since West (1976), the first I have been able to photograph, and my first sighting of noctilucent clouds (I wouldn't have been looking if it hadn't been for the comet prospect!).

Totally unofficial of course, but in the absence of a name (other than the unromantic designation), I'm calling this photo "Rosemary's Comet" in honour of a close friend's coincidental birthday!
