Comet hunters

 


In the light of recent events occurring in the sky over our planet, the subject of comets has become quite relevant. Moreover, the comet Panstarr this year will not be the only one flying within sight of Earth.
We decided to make a small selection of photographs of "hunters" for comets taken in different places and at different times. One of the most successful photographs of Panstarr over Los Angeles. Picture taken March 12, 2013 by Gene Blevins.
