Comet PANSTARRS

Comet PANSTARRS
Expert imager Damian Peach of Selsey, England, captured Comet PANSTARRS' dust and ion tails through a 4-inch refractor June 6. // Check out the full gallery here
Comet PANSTARRS started the "year of the comet" out with a bang. C/2011 L4 peaked around magnitude –1 when it swung into view after sunset during March. It was a lovely naked-eye comet in the evening sky and continued to be a great target for astroimagers well into the summer months. Check out all of the images photographers captured of Comet PANSTARRS below.
