This photograph has turned out to have quite a smoggy industrial feel about it. The yellow colour on the cloud is light pollution from the city. During the length of the exposure cloud drifted through the image, leaving most of the photograph looking cloudy yet the comet showing through the gaps. The cloud was moving quite quickly from left (south) to right (north).
The comet was harder to see tonight, partly due to the cloud and partly due to the fact it is getting closer to the sun and so not up as high in the sky after sunset.
