Comet PanStarrs at sunset

Uploaded by: GeorgeRX

Monday March 11, 2013

Tucson, AZ (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The comet was very close to the sun and was very close to setting when I found it the haze of sunset. Tomorrow (3/12) it will be close to the moon. Try binoculars... not really visible to the naked eye. Photo using Borg 77ED telescope.

Difficult capture. Great shot. Too cloudy where I'm at to have a chance of seeing it, so your photo is my only glimpse.

Glad to know someone can see it. We have
been overcast each evening and haven't
been able to view it yet.

Thanks for sharing your shot here.

Congratulations on your new AC.

Good one George. I'm glad someone has managed to catch this fella. Like Bronwyn, I have looked several times, but I think it has been too close to the sun.
