There is Nothing Permanent Except Change by Radical Retinoscopy, on Flickr

"There is Nothing Permanent Except Change" - Heraclitus. Comet C/2011 L4 (PanSTARRS) was photographed on March 12th, 13th, 19th, 21st as well as April 1st and 3rd as it continued its nightly travel across the western horizon. It was really interesting to observe the orbital dynamics of the comet and watch the tail change orientation each evening. Note -- ** The seven photos that make up this panoramic are best viewed in Large or Original size ** :ssmile:
