Comet PANSTARRS

We had a small turnout last Saturday, as was to be expected since we moved the meeting by a week, everybody was watching the KU – KSTATE game, and a great deal of St. Pat’s drinking had already started. What you missed was a program on comets and on comet PANSTARRS in particular. Here is a photo I took on March 13th, 2013. You will be able to see the comet low in the West-North West soon after sunset for the next few weeks. Don’t be fooled by the “it’s a naked eye object” stuff they keep reporting on TV. You will need at least binoculars to really see it – especially from town. (click the image to view it full size)
