Finally I was able to capture a comet PANSTARRS at Poipu Beach Park.  However, it was not bright enough to see by naked-eyes.  You need a binoculars or camera with telephoto lens to see the comet. 

It was 7:08 p.m. when I first noticed the moon.  The sky was still bright.  

It was 7:12 p.m. when I noticed I happened to photograph the comet!!!  I was just trying to take a picture of the young moon.

This picture was taken at 7:31 p.m.  I added sun in the picture so this can tell which is west.   I guess, tonight, the comet will be visible here in Hawaii with a binoculars from 7:10 p.m. to 7:50 p.m.

I have sent this picture to Earthsky!  and....

I'm grateful for Earthsky for providing information and including my photo here; Another chance to catch the moon and Comet PANSTARRS on March 13


Have a good day and night!
