  • If skies clear, look very low in the west about 30 minutes after sunset this week for Comet PanSTARRS. Binoculars are recommended due to the bright light of dusk. The comet should appear like a fuzzy star with a short tail extending upwards. Don't expect the view to look as obvious as in the diagram. The scene is drawn for about 40 north latitude, and the Moon is placed for a viewer near the middle of North America, on March 12.
