c2017 T2 PanSTARRS

Gregg Ruppel

Hi everyone:

Comet c2017 T2 PanSTARRS appears to be trying to out do Comet Y4 Atlas as they approach each other near the NCP:


I was only able to grab about 32 minutes of LRGB data before the comet dropped below the roof line of our observatory on 3/28.  The small reflection nebula near the lower right corner is vdB 8.

Clear skies,
