The comet has been in the vicinity of the southern Hemisphere for about 2 weeks now, but was not visible here until today because it was aligned with the sun. Since it is further from the sun now here, we will be able to see it just after the sun descends, approximately around 8:31 pm here, or maybe even a little earlier because of the mountains on my western horizon. It is now or never, as this comet won't be back. It is a once in a lifetime view for Comet PanSTARRS. And, I have a front row seat to see this remarkable creation!
Genesis 1:14-19 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
As can be seen in the image at left, the comet will be visible until about March 20th, depending on weather. (Click to enlarge.)
Recommended Camera Setting:
Use a long or zoomed-out lens, and put your camera on a tripod because with a long lens in twilight, exposures won't be short. Experiment with a variety of exposures.
Binoculars would be helpful, as it won't seem as bright for a few days.
