Comet Lovejoy 2013
My boyfriend and I tried our luck to see Comet Lovejoy on Saturday morning. It’s been cloudy for weeks now in Metro Manila so seeing lots of stars and a clear sky would be a big thing for us. Thankfully, we noticed the sky was clearing as we near Manila Observatory.
I saw Comet Lovejoy in constellation Bootes by checking Sky Safari’s night sky map and using a 7×50 binoculars. It was also very easy to find the comet because of its fuzzy texture.
Here’s my not-so-good image of C/2013 R1 (Lovejoy):
I used Canon 50D with 55-250mm lens to image the comet. I think it would be better if I use a telescope, but it depends if I still have time this week.
To the stars!
