Reply Dale says: January 15, 2007 at 5:28 pm …did they award it to the person who was found to Google their own name the most often? Reply Jen says: January 15, 2007 at 8:10 pm LOL at Dale! How cool is that Amber, see we always knew you were a star (ok, so technically a star is *not* a comet, but hey it’s also linked to the solar system…), and now it’s been proven Jen x Reply Amber says: January 16, 2007 at 11:14 am Hey, it’s been all over the news! Comet McNaught – brightest in 30 years! Reply david says: January 18, 2007 at 7:11 pm Named after Scots astronomer Robert McNaught. Any relation? It was so bright that some folk in Dunfries thought it was an aircraft on fire. Reply Amber says: January 19, 2007 at 6:39 pm No relation, I’m afraid, David! I wish I had seen it – the skies around here are normally too cloud-covered! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
