PANSTARRS Comet by catwhiskers

PANSTARRS Comet

Not the best shot, but it was cool to see. That little streak near the horizon on the left is it.

You can see it better when enlarged.
UTTERLY fab shot....the moon alone never mind a comet too!!!!!! Fav!

Wow. WOw, WOW. Excellent shot. I didn't even get to see it 'cause of the cloud cover (damn it!). The whole composition with that fabulous moon and hill tops make this even more awesome. FAVED!!!!!!!

@rwhite You hould be able to see it until I believe the 18th of this mont, so try again. It will be around the moon although moving from left to right as the days go by. We saw this around 8:00. the window to view it was pretty short though. Maybe around 20 minutes before it dipped below the horizon. It was hard to see with out a scope though..so try using some binoculars

The sliver of moon had got shrouded in cloud by the time I got home... had no idea the comet was anywhere nearby!! I'll be watching earlier tomorrow!! (We seem to be having frozen April showers at the moment though...) Fav!!

Wow well done, I tried but alas clouds put a stop to me seeing it.

Beautiful shot! I think it's awesome that you got the comet, but I have to admit it is a bit upstaged by your wonderful capture of the moon. ;-)

Wow, fantastic!

Hi Nan! Put this on the 'Panstarrs Comet' thread on the message board - hope you don't mind. I typed in your name but it didn't come up 'blue' as a link so wanted to make sure you had seen it :)
I spent last night gazing moon-ward but alas nothing with a tail. Fingers crossed my vision stays clear long enough this weekend ..!

Well done on getting this shot! It's incredible!!!
March 15th, 2013
