14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
A REAL Cosmic trail of a Comet's tail.
This return trip to earth has found me being able to capture photos never seen before. What a privilege. This was taken as we were passing a comet, most comet tail photos show long whitish plumes but when you're as close as I was this is what they really look like. Notice the small white orbs as they begin to disintegrate.
