Found this beautiful photo of Comet McNaught via io9 — hats off to the talented photographer, Michael Jaeger!
This glimmering apparition is Comet McNaught, which is visiting the inner solar system and may become visible with the naked eye by the end of the month. This is the first visit to the solar system by the million-kilometer comet.
