Near galactic miss
I ran out to the car, patting myself on the back for bringing the camera home. I didn't have the really long lens but the 135mm would have to do. I madly clicked away at the cosmic visitor with the unusual tail as it soared over my home. Then I started yelling, the neighbors need to see this baby. Once in a lifetime, right? Sadly there was no response to my excited shrieks.
I was feeling pretty smug about my lucky capture and shots. Right place at the right time. Until this morning that is, when I decided to blow them up and inspect my visual booty.
My comet was in fact just another dumb airplane. And so to my neighbors up the road, I must say, sorry about all that yelling.
