Planet Conjunction and Comet PANSTARRS. 26th April 2013.

by on , under Astronomy Blog

Went out to view the three planets in a triangle tonight. Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. Low down, but easily seen with the naked eye.
A quick image was taken before they disappeared behind the neighbouring garages.

I then concentrated my efforts on Comet PANSTARRS C/2011 L4.
It was not far from Polaris, so visible all night, but I had to catch it quick before the Moon rose too high.

My how this comet has changed since I last saw it in April.
