COMET GIACOMBINI ZINNER OVER M35 Taken by Chris Schur on September 15, 2018 @ Payson, AZ

A truly rare imaging opportunity this morning! The comet traveled right over the Messier star cluster M35 and made for a gorgeous composition. The other star cluster in the field is a background object, yellowed by its distance of 10x further away.
