the end of our line. at the top of the alum cave (bluff) trail. a couple of us went ahead to get as high as the trail would let us. meeting a rock face covered in ice, we figured it was as good of a place we’d find to call the end of the road.

PANSTARRS!

PANSTARRS!

It’s eluded me through 5 states and over two whole weeks, mainly because I am very inexperienced. But persistence pays off, as my girly & i were able to capture some images, albeit small. The president of the local astronomy club showed up at the remote spot we chose and let us look through his telescope and whatnot.

NOTE: PANSTARRS in the little orangish fuzzball at bottom center, with the small tail is pointing up 45 degrees, towards the south (lefthand side of the comet).

NOTE II: This photo is a zoomed in version of the previous photo (underneath this post).
