Angus MacLeod’s Sketch of a Comet, 1864

Angus MacLeod, Sketch of a CometIn anticipation of the live question and answer period from the International Space Station with NASA Astronaut Drew Feustel, we are choosing for our post this week a “Sketch of a Comet, or something like one” by Angus MacLeod in 1864 (V009). It is a lovely little watercolour with a fascinating tale to accompany it written in the borders. For more information on the open Q&A session check out the event page here.
