Comet Panstarrs was being hyped as the first good comet to pass by in a long time, so I had been anticipating its arrival.  However, because I was away on a trip,  I hadn’t seen it until last night (12 Mar. 2013).  I had looked for it previously, but poor sky conditions contributed to missing it until a good evening after I returned.  Having the moon nearby helped a lot to zero in on this somewhat disappointing comet.
