Things are looking up
We spend most of our time looking ahead, with occassional glances to the left and right (especially when busy streets are involved). But how often to we think to look up? There are often some fascinating things happening in the skies above. Fortunately, plenty of I-Reporters are there to document what the rest of us might be missing.

Such was the case with Comet McNaught. Right now, it's the brightest thing in the sky (except the sun), but if you don't know when or where to look, you'd almost certainly miss it. In fact, if you're in the northern hemisphere your chance to see it has come and gone. And time is running out for folks in the southern latitudes as well.

Good thing we were able to put together a gallery of images from around the world, submitted to I-Report by professional and amatuer astronomers alike. We dug through the archives and found some other neat stuff to go along with them, such as meteors and rocket launches.

Legendary DJ Kasey Kasem was fond of saying, "keep your feet on the ground but keep reaching for the stars." Let's just paraphrase that and say, "keep your eyes on the stars, and keep reaching for those cameras."
