Comet C/2005 E2 Grows A Tail

Post by mfortsm » Mon Jan 02, 2006 1:37 am

At my location in W Arkansas, this is the best comet show in town. Taken 12/30/2005 with a 4" FSQ refractor and Maxcam10 ccd. It sits low in the S/SW sky at dark and has a mgnitude at this image time of about 10. Only thing is, the tail is pointing towards the Sun. Anti-tail? I don't know.
