Description
The comet was barely a naked eye object, but very visible in the camera. Drove out with a friend from Albuquerque to the Very Large Array in central New Mexico, sky was clear and we saw the moon and comet to the horizon. Earthshine on the moon was incredible as well as the "horns" of the moon as it set behind a mountain.
