For any of you interested in viewing stars and the night sky, the comet PANSTARRS will still be visible from the northern hemisphere for another week or so. We finally saw it last night. The tail makes it more exciting than a star and the fact that we could find it with our cheapie binoculars made us feel pretty dang cool. Since we live in a valley it was tough to find a spot to view it, (dang mountains and trees) but turns out our best view was from our deck at home! Who knew? Initially we tried up the hill near some homes. I think the neighbors thought us peeping toms and had a few choice words thrown our way (or so it seemed). Oh well. They could have come outside to see what we were doing instead of just giving us dirty looks, whatever. But oh well, we saw the comet!! Woo hoo!
I am too scared of copywrite laws since that one blogger was sued for posting male models on her site, so you need to check out the forbes article below to see a pic and find out where to look and when.
Did you happen to see the comet?
