THIS stunning photo of a comet was captured in the Huddersfield skies.
It was spotted at twilight, high above Kirkheaton by Examiner reader Gain Lee, who took this photograph.
He said he spotted the comet at 4.40pm, just shortly after sunset.
Mr Lee said: "The comet was seen low in the sky in the west after sunset.
"It was showing a bright nucleus and upward pointing tail visible in daylight without optical aid"
The comet is believed to be Comet C/2006P1 McNaught.
It was discovered in August last year by Australian astronomer Robert McNaught.
The comet was also seen yesterday over the sunset sky near the village of Kostinbrod, north-west of the Bulgarian capital Sofia.
Tomorrow, the comet will be at its closest point to the sun.
A British Astromical Association spokesman said: "A few observers have been able to find Comet 2006 P1 (McNaught) in the twilight sky, and their observations indicate that the comet is perhaps at `second magnitude'.
"Assuming that the brightening continues it should become easier to locate.
"Observation is possible in both evening and morning twilight, with tail observation generally better in the evening twilight when the tail will be nearly vertical."
UK observers will have until around January 14 to see the comet in the twilight.
