Pan-Starrs image submissions and reports from AAS members and friends March
I wasn't able to "fix" all the trash in the picture. I really wasn't
in a good spot, but as you said, it was rather cold last night. I
am hoping to get a better shot later without so much LP.

I intend to get with it and start joining in on some of the activities
soon since now things seem to be calming down with the job here on campus
and the house and etc.. etc.

SAW IT! Went out to see if we could find PANSTARRS tonight. Couldn't see
it with the naked eye but found it with my 10x50 binoculars & got a
REALLY good view of it with my 20x80's! It was really neat to see the difference
between the comet's tail & the nucleus!

predicted, the Panstarr comet is on course. I glimpsed it tonight just
a few degrees south and a little higher than the sliver of the moon. It's
tail was small but that was to be expected considering it's trajectory.Could
not see it without my 10x50 binoculars. I saw the comet from the front
parking lot at Aldersgate UMC on Vaughn road about 7:20 tonight. My son's
Scout troup meets there.It was just above St James school campus.

intervals between 7:48 and 7:57 PM CDT. Can see the comet going down
below the trees in the last two frames. CLICK

my best effort to image below. The comet is just above the tree line
and below the Moon. You may be able to make out the tail.
