The comet Panstarr is suppose to be visible in the Northern Hemisphere just after sunset. I took a short trip up Badger Mt. hoping for an unobstructed view. What I got was a bunch of clouds. I took pictures anyway and hope there is clear horizon tomorrow at sunset.

The Enchantment Basin or the Mount Stuart Batholith

A wider shot of the valley.

As I descended from Badger I notice the sky was clearing a bit. I searched for the comet but it was either hidden behind a small cloud or had already sunk below the horizon.
