Comet Holmes loses its tail ?

Postby admin » Sat Nov 10, 2007 8:46 pm

I just read in the news that Comet Holmes loses its tail ( http://journals.aol.com/stuartatk/Cumbr ... il.../3158 )
I immediately rush to my telescope trying to locate the lost tail, but got no luck. Probably it's too dim for my telescope. The comet is still there and shining as usual. I'm watching it regularly since it burst up. Really exciting view.

Here's few images of the Holmes Comet mapped in SKY-MAP:
