The Pan-STARRS comet, visible to the naked eye this week, has captured the attention of astronomers and stargazers alike.
The video below was shot in a time-lapse photo sequence over the Dos Cabezas Mountains in San Simon, Ariz., Monday evening by photographer Fred Espenak.
The elusive comet will be prominent in the sky again tonight above many parts of the United States, before disappearing for another 100 million years.
