Yay!  I used my binoculars to see this comet tonight.  
Pan-STARRS!

I have a few of my favorite pix of comet Pan-STARRS up on the blog, and links to how you can see it yourself. It's naked-eye visible now (barely) but binoculars are your best bet.

Love the way the moon moves from right to left because if was filmed in the southern hemisphere.
Moonrise over New Zealand two days ago, shot by Mark Gee.  What a sight!

I wondered how Curiosity compared to Viking and found this. Nice post +Emily Lakdawalla!  I wonder how much many bytes Viking sent back vs how many we are expecting from Curiosity.  Any idea?
