Time-lapse movie of Comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 73P moving through the sky

In one of my recent Observation Logs, I wrote that I could actually see the comet moving over the space of five minutes or so. Now, NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) makes it even easier to see.

Whoops! I didn’t mention that I could see it could moving. Well, I could! Pretty cool movie, huh?
