Ray, may I respectfully suggest that,[ and beg to differ], it doesnt really matter where an initial post goes as long as those that follow on can find it! Ive not seen a thread yet that bogged down any forum, and Ive been here a very long time. All of these threads die eventually, regardless of where they are and in this case both are a test of General Knowledge.

You saved the image of the comet to your computer using Comet_2.jpg. Its all a learning curve, and I am still learning
