Washington: The recently discovered Comet Lovejoy has been captured in stunning time-lapse video taken from the Paranal Observatory in Chile as it blazed a trail across the southern sky on December 22, 2011.

The video was made public this week. The comet had just unexpectedly survived a close encounter with the Sun before astronomers at the observatory spotted it flying overhead.
