Description

Image of comet C/2012 K1 PANSTARRS taken on February 2, 2014, respect to image that I took a month ago has a similar brightness in spite of which morfologically seems have increased its coma size until 1' diameter keeping a moderate condensation. On the other hand seems has got a more greenish tone that the neutral tone that it had before.
