Molena, Georgia (IP) - Inventor and Astronomer David Blackshear discovered Comet 17e2007 and the comet was named Comet Blackshear 2007 by the International Astronomical Union (IAU).
David was at a country music concert when he looked up into the sky with nothing more than the use of the naked eye when he spotted the comet over head right through the blazing lights lighting up the concert.
It is the first time in modern times that a comet has been discovered without the use of optical instruments.
David went to his specially modified pick up truck and sent a morse code telegram to Dr. Povenmire Finootch of the IAU who looked out of his living room window and also spotted the comet thus verifying the discovery.
David is an inventive genius who developed the security camera apparatus which is shaped like an inverted half sphere full of cameras that is used in stores, offices, banks, and many other businesses worldwide. He is also known throughout Europe for his mastery at the musical art of Flamenco.
