Furman Physics Professor David Moffett and sophomore Johnpaul Sleiman worked together to capture this image of comet “46P/Wirtanen” in the night sky. It is this year’s brightest comet (it’s the greenish dot in the lower left portion of the photo), and it came within seven million miles of earth on Dec. 16. The Pleiades cluster is visible in the upper portion of the image. Moffett took a series of photographs of the night sky, while Sleiman processed and stacked the images to enhance the comet’s visibility.
