In the Spring of 2004, there were three comets that could be seen. This is very rare. One of the two comets visible in the pre-dawn skies was Comet Neat. Telescopic views of this comet showed an amazing colorful head and the traditional long tail.
Though I could see this comet through my telescope, a close up view was provided by Chris Schur. Thanks to Chris for this amazing view, upon which this image is based.
