    Default Comet Holmes from Jamau/Baja Mexico 11/13



    I'm blogging from Jamau/Baja Mexico over my mobile satellite-DSL on my
    4x4 van

    [ I'm here for the 40th anniversary of the <a href="">Baja 1000</a>

    ...many international racers are here like Armin Schwarz from
    Germany. ]

    I've been photographing Comet Holmes for 2 nights (11/12 & 11/13), &
    the wildly dynamic ion tail seems to have disappeared.

    My 8" f1.5 Schmidt-Camera might have picked up something, but I have
    to develop the film once I get back home.

    San Diego, using my mobile satellite-DSL. I drove back from Baja
    (Jamau), & stopped here on the way back to Los Angeles.

    The comet has lost it's wildly dynamic ion tail, but its coma has
    increased noticeably from last week. In 10×50 binoculars, you can see
    this big fuzzball & discern the nucleus (!). More photos:

    Saw a really nice Leonid meteor (mag 1) which left a persistent trail.
    This is sign of activity for the upcoming Leonid Meteor Shower which
    peaks in a few days.
