Comet PanSTARRS - March 12, 2013

 I got to see Comet PanSTARRS this evening! It was an hour after sunset that the group I was with finally spotted it.
 These pictures range from 9:11pm to 9:29pm. Once we knew where it was, I could slightly see it with the naked eye, but it is tiny! I couldn't locate it with binoculars at all, but the camera found it easily once I knew where to look.
 I plan to go out tomorrow night, since we are supposed to have clear skies again, so hopefully I can find it when the moon is in a different location!
