2013us10 20151221 pcarson

I was plagued with broken cloud this morning but did manage some images of C/2013US10. As the 120 second exposures appeared on my observatory PC monitor it was obvious there was activity in the gas tail. I’ve put together this 4 frame animation showing features moving down the tail. The four frames span 6 minutes between 06.05UT and 06.11UT. The coma is just off the image and the frame is 36 arc mins wide. It sure must be “windy” up there!!
