Would you like to see the Comet from Palomar?

Comet from Palomar by Mike Pique

It was so exciting to see this comet from the top of Palomar Mountain tonight!  We met up with a Palomar friend, Mike Pique and a couple friends had fancy binoculars set up.  That was extra special for the grandkids to first see Juniper rising with three of it’s moons, then the comet appeared that was apparently last visible about 6800 years ago!

Don spotted the Neowise Comet first through binoculars, then we could see it faintly with just our eyes.  It was visible for at least 20 minutes – you just have to know where to look.

We were parked along the south side of East Grade Road, across from Dyche Valley, near the big metal barn.  Looking up from there, the brightest light to the left of the comet, is Glenn and Cecilia’s home out on Birch Hill.

Many thanks to Mike for sending the photo.  He plans to be out again tomorrow night, same place and starting about sunset.  YOU are invited!
