Panstarrs : how visible is it at the moment (14 march)

Recommended Posts

I havn`t managed to see it with the naked eye ........ from my back garden in Gateshead.

I'm just down the road in Washington, and I saw it naked eye last night ( 15th ), just before it dropped below the roof tops. Earlier in the evening, with lighter sky, it was bins only.

This picture shows four images about 7 to 8 minutes apart, from first spotting it as it dropped out from behind a cloud to just above the roof tops. It can only just be made out in the centre of the first image, but was naked eye by the last. From cloud to roof was about 30 minutes of viewing; standing on my workshop roof!
