Description

Comet C/2013 US10 (PANSTARRS) on March 6th 2016, has moved away to 2 A.U. from the Sun and Earth, showing a lot of changes since the last time I shoot near two months ago: its brightness has dropped to magnitude 9.5, its gas tail has missed, and the dust tail with a longitude of half degree has been stretched because our perspective as the Earth approaches to its orbital plane.
