Comet PANSTARRS Observation (Day 1)

As much as I want to go out of town to check out the comet, I cannot do this because I am saving up my vacation leave, hahaha! I saw Comet PANSTARRS for the first time at 6:40pm on March 12, 2013 (indeed 40 minutes after sunset! Amazing!). The sky was also clear that made it easier for me to catch the comet. ūüôā

40 floors up just to view the comet!

During sunset, I saw an atmospheric phenomenon called Belt of Venus in the east.

My first images of Comet PANSTARRS!!
