Comet 17P/Holmes on 11/10/07

This is tonight’s comet photo – you can see the tail developing behind the comet. If I’ve got some more time after my kids’ First Lego League meeting tonight, I’ll take some more images to get a broader view. It’s really getting hard to see with the naked eye because it’s getting so spread out, but is quite clear both in the scope and in binoculars.
