COMET PANSTARRS (C/2015 ER61) NEAR ARIES MOLECULAR CLOUDS Taken by Yasushi Aoshima on November 12, 2017 @ Ishikawa, JAPAN

What a great comet! It still has over 60′ long tail...
Many comet fans may forget about this comet. Because a bunch of magnitude farecasts tells its already very dark. But actually it has not faded out yet, and still has long tail. Lucky for you, the earth will go across the orbital plane of this comet in this moonless weekend. So you have a chance to catch a longer dust tail, if you will get a clear sky. Data: EF300mmF2.8L USM, CanonEOS6D, 12800 ISO, 87x60sec stacked (11:14-12:43 UT), FOV: 4.7 x 7°, North: left
