Astroimager Miguel Claro from Corroios sent in the following report: "After a few days of rain and clouds near the horizon, I was finally able to photograph Comet PANSTARRS in the Portuguese sky. Actually, I had just returned from a weekend photo trip and was exhausted, but the sky was totally clear, so I found some 'extra forces' to delay my sleep. I took the image in the city of Almada, near Lisbon, Portugal." Claro used a Canon 50D DSLR with a lens set to 108mm and f/5. He set his camera at ISO 1000 and took a 1/60-second exposure March 17 at 7:43 p.m. local time.
