Now the frustration for Seattle astronomers can get started. Early in March Comet PANSTARRS will be visible in the western skies after sunset. When was the last time we saw a good sunset? I think I remember one about 3 weeks ago.
The comet was giving some great views in the Southern skies - it is summer in Australia right now, and they have had their fair share of good comets over the years, so it's our turn now for us northern dwellers!
Keep looking west over the next weeks and if it's clear we may get lucky and see something.
