Cometary Tales

Location: Somewhere in California, USA

Natural philosophers of the middle ages studied comets, too.

Are you interested in science, nature, photography, and literature?  Welcome!

If you’d like a high-quality copy of any of the original images on this site or would like to share the images or information elsewhere, I’m more than happy to work with you.  All of the original work here is copyrighted, but that doesn’t mean it needs to stay hidden away.  And the full-quality photos are of course even more “impactful” than the 100k versions we use for web purposes.

On the other hand, please notify me if you find an image here that you don’t think has been properly attributed.  I do include images from government agencies and other public domain sources, but I have heard of instances where someone who didn’t own a piece of work uploaded it as public domain.


To contact me, your best bet is to write me directly at!

Don’t like the bloggy format?  On Facebook, I have snippets of this material on the Cometary Tales page and I maintain some related, but more science-focused material at Pixel Gravity.

Really only interested in the 140280-character version?  Fine, then, follow me on Twitter, but be prepared for long stretches of quiet interspersed with fan-girl-noisy posts during launches and landings.

Visual, are we? Check out my albums on Flickr.

Sorry about the extra step, but without it the only comments that come in are from people selling bogus designer handbags and shoes.
