Latest News Saturday 16th of March 2013

Comet Panstarrs, which has been visible for the past few days just after sunset from different parts of Spain, has been photographed from the El Torcal natural park (just north of Malaga) last night. The picture, taken by Francisco Gálvez directory of the observatory at the park, shows the comet and its trail in the western sky. The comet should be visible again tonight, depending on the weather, and the observatory has organised a free viewing session for tonight for anyone who wishes to attend.
