Howdy all: Here is my observation of Comet Panstarrs from Tom Clark's place about 30 miles from Deming, NM. I rated the transparency at 5/10, we had some dust storms this afternoon. The Moon is getting thick, so this may the last time I get to view it until the end of the month or June at Fredericksen's Meadow. 20 May 2013 New Mexico 20X80 binoculars Just me at 2 AM again. The comet is pretty bright, large and elongated 3X1 with a pretty bright nucleus. There is a faint anti-solar ray that is at an angle of about 135 degrees with the nucleus. Overall, it looks like a capitol letter "L". The anti-tail is easier and more prominent with averted vision.
