Comet Pan-STARRS and the thin, thin crescent moon at sunset

Comet PanSTARRS and the Crescent Moon

Last week during the first opportunity for us to even see C/2011 L4 PanSTARRS, the barely 1-day old crescent moon was a few degrees away. I managed to do a very very short time-lapse of the two together as the clouds streamed by. Here is a still from that sequence of images.

Nikon D7000, 2 second exposure, 240mm lens, f/5.3, ISO 400
