Enjoy!!!

Hey wmd_2008, an absolutely beautiful video (and great music, too, by the way)!

Thanks for putting this up, and I of course also keep my fingers crossed that the weather will be a bit better soon, so that you can capture it with your own equipment as well.


S+F!

Here you go, in the west just after sunset may need binoculars to find it.

Cool vid !

I am a little confused though, as the comments on the same video(below vid)
are dated 2 and 3 weeks ago.
When are/were Comets Lemmon and PanSTARRS to pass?
Are we able to view them for long periods of time? (don't know,just asking)


Well had I looked further I could have answered my own questions

Great maybe I can catch a glimps of something other than metorites.

Thanks for posting this thread very much appreciated
