Pan-STARRS comet photographed at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on March 12th.
It still may be possible to view this comet over the next several days in the northern hemisphere. Use binoculars if you have them.
Start looking 30 minutes after sunset in the direction of sunset. Look low about 10 degrees above the horizon near the top edge of twilight. With your binoculars, you should be able to see the comet head with the tail pointed upward.
