Comet PanSTARRS – II

Just a few days ago Comet PanSTARRS became visible to observers in the Northern Hemisphere. Today, the comet was located very near the 30h-old crescent moon making a striking pair of objects in the western twilight sky.

Tomorrow the moon will be higher in the sky with the comet below. Another photo opportunity!

  1. Awesome composition David! In Europe the crescent moon was very thin and barely visible. Pan-STARRS and the earthshine moon make a great couple.

    Clear skies,

  2. Thanks! I looked at the images on your blog page and you captured the moon and comet nicely!
