Hi all:

Comet T2 PanSTARRS continues to shine around magnitude 11 in Auriga:

The tail appears smaller than in my earlier image, likely due to the low altitude (imaged before moonrise).

LRGB, 40 minutes total exposure

Clear skies,

Gregg,

Nice catch. We are going to have to start calling you Messier Man as our resident comet hunter.
