Description

Comet C/2016 R2 (PANSTARRS) photographed on February 20th 2018 from my backyard. With a little know-how and a minimal gear is possible get out some decent from a suburban sky without narrow filters, for instance, a magnitude 11 comet with a blue tail only at 30 deg. of altitude above horizon.
