Comet Panstarrs naked eye visible
      #5709706 - 03/02/13 10:58 PM

Hi All,

This is just going north so observers in the North Hemisphere get ready for it.

On March 2nd from a rural area comet Panstarrs was visible to the naked eye, I estimate mag 2.

It's looking nice in the photos with a bright nucleus that to my untrained eyes has a strange shape.



Luis

Great image Luis! What was the local time? This is going to take some planning/scouting to find someplace with a good view close to the horizon and.....better weather!

Thank you guys.

More photos here: http://www.luisargerich.com/panstarrs

I took the images from 8:20pm to about 9:00pm.
It was an easy object with the naked eye and very bright with the camera.

It seems to have a lot of dust so the tail might grow more in the next days.

I really hope it produces a nice show post-perihelion for North Hemisphere observers.

Thanks for the URL. #10 with the Iridium flare over the landscape is very cool. Nice collection.

Ysterday March 3rd the comet was visible to the naked ete from downtown Buenos Aires, a very very light polluted city.

It's very low in the west but both the nucleus (actually coma) and the tail are visible.

It should be around Mag 1 and getting brighter, it seems it will be a good show in the North Hemisphere, get ready!

Thanks for the update...we are waiting in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for a wonderful view across the lake.

Looks like the weather may hold with no clouds.

Best Regards,

Preston
