    Gianluca, Panstarrs is already at magnitude 1 and getting
    brighter,with a nice fan tail. The VT should have a couple
    of evenings of observing Panstarrs , as this is designated
    the year 2013 as the Year of the Comets!

    In Deutschland sind hier an der Ostsee noch viel zu viele Wolken aber ab morgen soll es dann endlich schön werden und Komet Panstarrs sichtbar sein 🙂

    This will be a great chance for my Grandson and Granddaughters to get immersed in astronomy and prep them for our new Celestron 8″ telescope.

    Hi Gianluca,
    I’ve been looking due west near to the moon 40 minutes after sunset but I still can’t see the comet, I really want to see it. When is the last time I’ll be able to see it from Sheffield in the UK?

      we still have several days to see it. Be sure to locate the right spot in the sky. Scan the area with a binocular, it may helps. Good luck!

    I missed Halebop, Halley was a wash out and now there are too many clouds from the west to see Pan-starrs. The U.S. is lousy for many things and it seems astronomical events are no exception. EVERY time there is a comet or meteor shower the weather sucks and I miss it. I am going to keep trying for Pan-starrs until it’s too faint but maybe I will be able to see the one in November.
