This was an awesome sight to see. Comet PANSTAARS and the crescent moon make a perfect couple in the twilight sky. There was a little bit of haze that evening however the comet put on a good show, in fact a second tail was visible. Very cool! Taken at 19:50 on March 12, 2013 with a Nikon 1 V1 using a 30-110mm lens at ISO 400 f/5.6 for 5 sec.
