1. This shot was taken on Kyle Canyon road north of Las Vegas, Nevada, The Moon was out in full force so the seeing wasn't as good as the week before...but the comet is still quite visible ...this weekend the moon will be coming up the comet should be more visible once again.

2. The glow in the backround beneath the comet is Indian Springs , Nev. where the U.S.Air Force Thunderbirds practice their airshow performances. Joshua tree in the forground.
