Stuart Atkinson from the Eddington Astromnomical Society took these pictures of comet 'PANSTARRS' on Saturday night (16th March), from Kendal.
Mr Atkinson said the comet can be seen low in the west after sunset from anywhere in the UK, and has been seen several nights in a row from Kendal.
Retail expert Keith Jackson, from the University of Cumbria, told ITV Border the reason he believes Comet are going into administration:
There are concerns for hundreds of local jobs after the electronics store Comet confirmed it will go into administration.
The company has 15 outlets in the region, but has been struggling in recent times against competition from internet only retailers.
Comet will go into administration next week. It's believed the stores will stay open whilst attempts are made to find a buyer.
