Comet PanStarrs over Gosford Waterfront

Captured on the 6th March at Gosford Waterfront, in what was my first and last glimpse of Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) before it sank below the horizon for the Southern Hemisphere and became a Northern Hemisphere object.

I put myself in the scene to give it some context :)

It was a nice naked eye sight, would’ve looked even better under dark skies. I couldn’t spot it until about 8:03 on the back of the camera while zoomed in, and spotted it naked eye visually from about 8:10pm.

5s exposure @ ISO2000, f/5, 55mm with the Canon 6D and 24-105mm lens.
