I almost froze my fingers getting this picture of the first naked-eye comet of 2013; Pan-STARRS. It’s only -6°C outside but a nasty north wind with it. It wasn’t quite dark enough, so not a great shot, but a few minutes later a solitary cloud came and hid it. The sky was clear except for a thin band of cloud on the horizon and no time to go far enough to get the cloud out of line-of-sight before the comet followed the setting sun below the horizon. Just a few more days and it won’t be visible again from earth for 10,000 years.
Let’s hope that ISON gives us a good show in November and that we get good viewing weather.
