Lulin Spooks the Hive

Conjunction of Comet C/2007 N3 (Lulin) with M44, The Bee Hive
Sketch and Details by Jeff Young

The moon is taking a massive toll on Lulinโ€™s visibility (and particularly its tail), but it still made for a nice composition with the Beehive.

    Splendid! Here is everything what is the need for sketch: the background, the main actor and the action. ๐Ÿ˜€
