Comet over New Mexico

In case you don't know, the comet Panstarrs is making it's northern hemisphere debut this month.

Tonight at Rockhound State Park I kept a sharp lookout for it after sunset and was able to spot it with the binoculars and telephoto lens.

I got some decent shots (for an amateur that is)

You can check them out on our blog Here.

Good pictures.
They hyped it on the 6:00 o'clock weather last night and about how you would be able to see it with the naked eye. I went out to try to see it. No luck, but there were some thin clouds that way. Then on the 10:00 o'clock news the same guy said that after looking himself you would probably need some assist in the form of binoculars or telescope.
Oh, well. Guess I will just wait for Haley's to come by again. Oops! That is not until 2061. Not gonna be here.
Maybe Kahoutek. Ohh! Not for 75,000 years!
Guess I will just have to watch for meteors.

Reminds me of the time Mike Shannon, St Louis Cardinals broadcaster, was broadcasting from Shea Stadium in NY and commented that " the full moon was so beautiful and he wished the folks back in St Louis could see it".
The comet pics are great as well.
