Astronomy Science ~ Amazing Pictures shows a rare panorama of the comet hurtling through space and leave a trail of gas and ice behind.

Comet Lovejoy is currently seen crossing in the northern hemisphere - and photographers around the world are itching to capture the image. This comet is getting brighter every day, making it easier for those in the northern hemisphere to see.

Comet Lovejoy today is about 43 million miles from Earth and is estimated drove about 15 miles per second. This comet is also known as C / 2014 Q2, first discovered by Australian astronomer Terry Lovejoy, who has a record of productive to find the comet. Until recently, Mr. Lovejoy of Queensland have discovered five comets, all using relatively simple equipment compared to a comet that was discovered in a professional observatory.

C / 2014 Q2 was first seen on 17 August and in recent weeks the comet was photographed by amateur astronomers around the world. Comet is basically a pile of stones, gravel, and dust held together by various types of ice - basically ice water and carbon dioxide ice.

When the comet approaches the sun, the cold tail turns into a gas and thrown away - it is due to the pressure of the solar wind and the sun. They also release dust and pebbles that tend to orbit the sun - and if this material cut-Earth orbit, would generate annual meteor showers.

As the chart shows though, the comet's trajectory did not take in earth orbit. At the current level of brightness, Lovejoy can be seen with the n*ked eye - in spite of a full moon will make it more difficult. A comet's brightness is measured by the size and the scale of astronomy, a lower number indicates a more intense brightness. But the chart shows that the trajectory of the comet dust is not cut-Earth orbit.

Comet Lovejoy begins at magnitudo15 and has now reached a magnitude 5, the brightness needed to be seen without the aid of a telescope. As reported by National Geographic, Lovejoy comet will reach a magnitude 4.1 in mid-January, which means that people can see this comet trail of suburban 'tainted light pollution.

Some observers also see Lovejoy at the end of December due to the time he reached magnitude 5.3. Lovejoy striking color caused by two gas emanating from the comet, gas cyanogen and diatomic carbon, both of which are green when the sun passed

According to CBS News, Lovejoy is closest to Earth on January 7 - after that, he will begin to move away from the Earth and loss of brightness. This comet reaches the position closest to the Sun on 30 January.

Currently, Comet Lovejoy can be found near the Orion constellation
