Comet Pan-STARRS ... Calling for your pix!

We had a sudden break in the weather in Maryland, so I grabbed my camera and ran to the nearest view of the western sky. (It was pouring rain earlier in the day. I was not as well prepared as I should have been.)

I was not able to see the sky with the naked eye until after the Moon set, but I could see it with my Celestron binoculars for perhaps 10 minutes. And the comet shows up in many pictures. It's not the greatest, but you can definitely see the tail and a hint of the central condensation.

Send in your shots, please!
