Comet Pan-STARRS (C/2011 L4)

Comet Pan-STARRS (upper left) dances with the Moon and clouds. At magnitude 2, the comet was not visible to the naked eye in the bright twilight. The clouds made it quite a challenge to capture any image containing both Pan-STARRS and the Moon at the same time.

CalSky provided information showing that the comet would be within 4 degrees of the Moon this night, providing a rare opportunity to photograph the two together. This image was captured with the camera looking due west, across northern Fort Worth, Texas. The tall grain elevators in the lower left are located in Saginaw, Texas

Equipment: Canon EOS 300D, Sigma 55-200mm lens at 94mm, ISO 1600, 0.4s exposure.

Date: March 12, 2013
Watauga, Texas, USA.
