Over the next week or so Comet PannSTARRS will be visible near the moon after sunset in Asheville and along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. Bundle up and head outside at dusk. Although not visible with the naked-eye, it isn’t hard to find with an average pair of binoculars. Use the guide on the Astronomy Club of Asheville website as a guide. Asheville photographer Tim Barnwell shot the photo from downtown Asheville on Tuesday night about 8:15pm. Remember that the comet sets quickly so you very early season Parkway explorers will have only a 20-30 minute window to see it before PannSTARRS sets behind the mountains.
