Comet Lulin C/2007 N3 - February 28, 2009


I went to Caliraya , Laguna with some members of the Astronomical League of the Philippines (ALP) to observe and image Comet Lulin C/2007 N3. The dark skies of Caliraya really brought out the best view of this comet and compared to my last observation of this comet last February 22 under the light polluted sky at PAGASA Observatory in UP-Diliman.

So, one can really say that it is worth spending a little more money and time to go out to darker site to observe not only Comet Lulin but also other deep sky objects!!
