Lovejoy in the New Year

2014 might mean out with the old (as was the case with Comet ISON, which fell victims to the sun), and yet, Comet Lovejoy (C/2013 R1) is still alive and well, and was captured in this scene on New Year's day.

Now headed for the outer Solar System, Lovejoy remains a good object to spot for stargazers in 2014.
