Comet C/2011 L4 – Panstarrs

by , under Comets & Meteors

The last week or two, there’s been a 45 minute window each morning to catch comet Panstarrs in the north east sky. I missed the western evening view in March, as it was to close too the horizon, but this morning north eastern view is working out pretty well. Here’s a 30 second X RGBL image of Comet Panstarrs.
