Comet PANSTARRS with ITT F6010

Postby Stanley » Thu Oct 09, 2014 8:56 am

Didn't think this one would pan out but sure enough, got a decent opportunity to hunt comet PANSTARRS down. Though not quite the text book comet at this point in its travel, the telltale structure made it readily identifiable. The tail is fan shaped with the edges being fairly distinct, the coma was well defined and obvious.

Here's the video documenting it appearance on Oct. 4th 2014:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NfETUFbmHQ

Stanley, I liked the video.

However...

The video description keywords frightened me a little. Especially from someone as smart as yourself.

Glad you liked the Vid! It was just one of those lucky captures seeing it unfold was quite a rush not quite as big a rush as watching Sprites and Elves first hand but pretty cool none the less.
