Details:
A gorgeous green comet it indeed is, easily visible to the naked eye as a huge moon sized misty patch near the Hayades star cluster. And its moving so fast against the background stars too! Special astro imaging processing techniques were required to go 90 minutes here, and keep both the comet and stars motionless.
