Description After two clowdy sunsets, we were able to find again
At this time I change the city trying a better place
with less light in the sky.
The campus of the Radioastronomy Institute of Argentina
in Villa Elisa, far away from city lights, its
an incredible and quiet place but full of "mosquitos".
In the picture we can see the anthena Nº2 in the
radioastronomy field and the comet and its long tail
a minutes before dissapearing in the horizont.
