C/2006 W3 (Christensen)

 Comet C/2006 W3 (Christensen)

 

Many fast-moving comets are near the horizon, making it difficult to sketch movement against the SAME star field (FOV) before the object sets or becomes difficult to see.  This one was fast and not close to the sun or the horizon, a real treat.  No tail seen, so the quick movement of this one was what was appreciated.
 
This 1st page shows two drawings ( Aug 14 and Aug 22, 2009 ), with both showing movement over a 2-3 hour period.
 
 
 
This 2nd (last) page shows one drawing, no movement, on Sept 11, 2009.
