Comet PanSTAARS seems to have brightened since my last observation from Tucson last Thursday evening. It was cloudy last Friday and I was traveling back to Missouri over the weekend so last night after class was my first opportunity since I got back home. This is a picture of the comet taken from the Longview College campus with parking lot lights behind us. we were looking across the Kansas City metropolitan area so in addition to the parking lot lights we were dealing with the sky glow from the city lights. Nonetheless the comet was easily seen in binoculars and with the naked eye. Picture was taken at 8:30 pm CDT.
Here is a short slideshow of pictures of the comet.
