|Comet's blow creates a rainbow!|
After hearing that our friends on the Captain's Lady III out of Newburyport had seen one of our favorite fin whales, Comet, just south of Boon Island, we headed up that way again. This report wasn't a surprise, as Comet has been around the area for several days. What was a surprise, though, was that we got to "the spot," and...no Comet! It was a good lesson in how quickly whales can move in just a few hours.
