comet slightly fainter (Blue Mountain)

Tom came in from outside reporting the sky was clear. Amazing after raining all day...

We all blitzed outside to check the surprisingly bright Comet Holmes.

I set up my binos on my big Manfrotto tripod so we could all take a look.

It seemed slightly fainter than a couple of nights ago. Someone pointed out this is because it is closer and more dispersed.


Could see more stars in the Alpha Persei cluster. In fact, I could see about 5 or 6 stars naked eye...


When the clouds near the horizon broke, we could steal looks at Mars.
