Comet Pan-Starrs became visible for the first time as the clouds cleared in St john's on March 18,2013.   This is how it appeared from Signal Hill on a cold -12 wind chill evening. The core and outer coma were a great sight in a small telescope.   I used a Nikon D5000 with a135mm lens and a polarizer. the exposure was 8 seconds at ISO 1600.
