Home Forums RAC Main Forum General Discussion Observing tonight? Re: Observing tonight?


    i stopped off the side of Salem rd and got a good look at the comet. it was much higher than
    i thought it would be. very nice tail and nucleus. if i get out again to see it i will try the Oronoco
    site Q mentioned. every time i observe a comet i think of Don Pearce, aka "Capt Comet", a former
    club member and head of the Comet SIG from my old club (HAS) whose enthusiasm for comets
    was highly infectious. it is sad when many of the people you affiliated with in your hobby are no
    longer with us. thanks to all that created enthusiasm in me this time and made me get off my tuchus
    to go observe it! RIP Capt Comet!! you are still remembered…
