So far no Panstarrs

It was supposed to be best placed for viewing around 45-60 mins after sunset with a clear sky. I drove up to the top of a hill about a mile or so away, with a clear view to the west.  I had a clear sky but an annoying bank of cloud on the horizon.  If Panstarrs was there, I reckon it was behind the cloud, although others have said it is faint and not likely to be picked up without binoculars.  I did scan with my binoculars.  Picked up quite a lot of planes a long way in the distance, but no comet.  Ah well, better luck next time we have a clear sky.

  1. That’s the crescent moon, by the way. There was good earthshine on it, but of course my little camera doesnt pick that up.
