Comet Pan-STARRS is Here!

Journal, Photography, Science Tech

This week, be sure to pull out some binoculars and head to the nearest clear western horizon to be treated to views of Comet Pan-STARRS! Comet Pan-STARRS should be easily visible in binoculars and even small telescopes. I was able to see it with the unaided eye. Look west, and about a fist’s width (held out at arm’s length) below the moon tonight (the 13th). Here are a few photographs I took last night:

A widefield with the moon. This might help you locate it.

Here are some closeups I took through my telescope.
