When You Get Caught Between the Moon and Comet Pan-STARRS
Last night a friend and I took these pictures from Pukalani. We used my Canon SX130, but there was a certain amount of...collaboration.

It's been cloudy here for days, ever since the comet moved north. It was cloudy when I got to work yesterday, and I figured we were out of luck, but the clouds dissipated around sunset, and there it was!
Here is an "arty" shot, taken just before it set.
Comets are fun! I'm going to try again tonight, maybe use my film camera. It won't be so easy to spot tonight, because the moon's not near. I know now that you have to wait until it's good and dark.
