Exclamation IceInSpace Interviews Terry Lovejoy

2007 has already been a big year for comets, with Comet McNaught (C/2006 P1) putting on a spectacular display in January. Well itís not over yet! Long-time IceInSpace member Terry Lovejoy (CometGuy) has just discovered a new comet, C/2007 E2 (Lovejoy), his first such discovery - and the first ever comet discovery using an off-the-shelf digital camera!

Mike talks to Terry about his discovery, his methods and how it feels to finally find what heís been searching for.

You can read the interview on the IceInSpace Interviews page, or directly by clicking on the link below:

Thanks to Terry for taking the time to talk to IceInSpace.

What an excellent interview – as I read on, I felt the sense of growing excitement as if I were there with Terry at the moment of his discovery! I met Terry recently as a result of IIS and he has an amazingly modest set up and is a top bloke.

Thanks for telling the story of Terry, his discovery of Comet 2007/E2 and Terry’s methods – a fascinating read, right in our own back yard.

Cheers

Dennis

I have to say, there is an ommission, re Terry's SOHO discoveries - he was the first person in the world to discover a comet via d/l images on his home computer from a space observatory over the net, as i understand it
