Comet Watching

Saturday was not the night to watch for comet Pann-Starrs: that was Sunday night, and we had clouds. But I took the camera out Saturday to take photos and get a kind of baseline of the sky.


The sky was lined with trails from airplanes.


This is not a comet. It's an aircraft. I think.



If you look along the mountain ridge top, you can see the trail of an airplane glowing in the light of the setting sun.



I have not yet seen the comet, but it certainly was a pretty sky. I will look again on the next clear night.
