Description
This image was captured just moments after sunset overlooking St. Andrews Bay. I really wasn't expecting to see the comet, but as soon as the sun dipped below the horizon, it was easily visible to the naked eye and spectacular in binoculars. It was nice to see the comet one last time before leaving us and making its way into Southern Hemisphere skies.
