DescriptionThis image shows Comet 2P Encke in the orange glow of evening twilight as it was getting ready to set in the west skies of Denver over the Rocky Mountains. The comet has a faint slender tail to the upper right of the comet coma in these images. The insets attempt to show the tail although it is hard to do in the twilight sky.
