Astronomy and astrophotography under California stars

March 12, 2013: After a couple of only moderately successful viewings of Comet PanSTARRS from the desert in Landers, I decided to head to the coast to get a good view of the comet's conjunction with the very thin crescent Moon. The weather cooperated beautifully and 30+ people at Del Cerro Park enjoyed fantastic views of the quickly dimming comet.
