Farewell Comet PanSTARRS (From Southern Skies)

Western sky imaged at 9:10 pm ACDST, at this time comet PanSTARRS was 4 degrees above the horizon. No comet was seen with binoculars, before this time when the comet was higher, or later when it would have been lower to the horizon with twilight deepening.

Well, the clouds that have plagued us since the 5th , when I last got an image of  C/2011 L4 PanSTARRS (see here, and previous images here and here) have finally gone.

But so has the comet, it is now far to low in the twilight to see. The good news is that it has now turned up in the northern hemisphere, and we southerners pass the baton onto our northern brethren.
