C/2011 L4 (PANSTARRS)

 

It looks like if 2013 will be a good year for comets. This spring Comet Panstarrs is visible in the darkening sky after Sunset and in December comet ISON should put up an even more impressive show.

Sadly cloudy, wintery weather prevailed so far, and I was only able to take a quick peek at comet Panstarrs last friday. I had to sneak out of my own birhday party to have a look and take some quick pictures.
