Is it a bird? Is it a Plane? ...

Whilst most of us have been sleeping or working, a comet called Comet McNaught has been making its way across the skies.

Comet McNaught, which is set to shine brighter than the planet Venus this weekend, was caught on camera at sunset when it is at its best.

The newly discovered comet, first observed in Australia last August, is three times more dazzling than Hale-Bopp in 1997. Tomorrow the star will sweep within 15.8 million miles of the sun and continue glowing until Monday.

These are some of the views of the brightest comet for 32 years. For a comparison this is a camera shot from New Zealand a friend sent and one from London I found.

Apart from all the heavenly activity this week has been quite quiet. Busy doing nothing, you know the sort of days - you seem to be always on the go, but at the end of the day you have nothing to show for it?!

However we are getting quite familiar with London now, and I have bought some cool black Jewellery for my piercings.

We met up with two friends on Saturday from our "Vaughan Town experience"; Pete and Clare which was really nice. Clare shown us the delights of a Kiwi cafe where they serve you flat whites!! why dont they just say coffee?!

Anyway on wednesday we are off Scuba diving so look out for the report on that one ;)

Be good and I may see you real soon.
