Comet Pan-STARRS and the Crescent Moon
On March 12th, 2013 Comet Pan-STARRS hangs close to the slender crescent moon low in the western sky just after sunset. A large weather system plagued the east coast today and hopes of seeing the comet were slim, but Mother Nature had something else in store for me. As the Sun began to set the clouds started clearing and within 10 minutes the comet and moon were visible. Thanks Mother Nature!! I owe you one! Or... two!
