Description
Comet pan-STARRS and crescent moon. I was trying to get to the country for a better view when I hit a pot-hole and ruined a tire. I pulled over and pointed the camera toward where I thought the comet should be and opened the camera. I could not see the comet when I took the pic. Lucky shot.
