This is a spur of the moment shot of Comet Panstars. I couldn't even see it to focus on it, but here it is.

That is the face of an angel Glenn!

Ahhh youth, be careful on that skateboard, it's tough to get in and out of your A36 perch if you're riddled with those titanium screwey things.

Zim, you grinned before the "S", it just widened. You still in the blue water?

Yes it was. You may be able to see it tomorrow evening. Look west and somewhat below the moon. I am not sure how far away from the moon it will be, but that will give you some reference. For me, I looked out around 6:30, but the sky was too bright at that time. I did manage to spot it with my binoculars. From there, I set up my tripod, got my remote release and aimed about where I thought it was. A quick look through the binoculars confirmed that I was close, but it was so dim that I just guessed at the focus, and then I made minute adjustments from there. Unfortunately, the head of the comet looks more like a white line than a fuzzy snowball. I will try again tomorrow night as well, so maybe my results will be better then.

The comet should be visible for the next several days, although it may already be dimming. It will travel from due west moving more northward each night.

PHOTO OP ALERT

To my Fort Worth/Alliance brother and sisters. It appears you've got an Antonov An124 headed your way today. Looks like it is scheduled to arrive in the late afternoon or early evening. Might be a terrific opportunity to photograph this big boy in nice light. Here is a link to the FlightAware tracking. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/ADB218F

Here is a photo I took a few weeks ago of the Antonov landing at KPHX. I hope it works out for someone to get a solid image.

Hey Jeff, not sure if you caught it...but there's actually 2 A-124's scheduled to AFW, one out of Malga (Africa) due in at 20:47, and then there's an "unknown" Antonov due in at 21:17 from Rio De Janero, and then a A-124 due in from Rio at 04:27. I think there's a flight plan error in there, either that or there's actually 3 Antonov's flying in to Fort Worth in 24 hours.

of a stranger note, the A-225 hasn't filed a flight plan since march of last year according to Flightaware...which is the day it left Calgary...then relayed through Bangor to West Africa.

Hey Steve - I was not aware of the other potential An-124 flights for today. Around these parts, we have found that sometimes the Antonov flight plans are reliable and other times not. Hopefully, the flight plans for Alliance are valid and someone will get some nice images.

considering they're coming from 2 locations I would say there are definitely two coming.

The one from Malga is already showing as Enroute over the Atlantic

June 15th, 2012 from 4k' with Pilot Glenn flying 172DL over AFW enroute to the Denton Airshow.

An-124







Edited: changed ATK to AFW and Dayton to Denton for posterity. Thanks to Glenn for the corrections.

This is all very confusing to me. I'm confused as to why they would be sending two 124's when the 225 definitely appears to be not doing anything...

I suppose they could be going to different places...ah who knows...I'd like to see one of them again. I'd settle for a 124.

Steve,

Malaga (LEMG) is in Spain.

Flightaware is not always the most accurate. It's more likely that the Antonov is inbound AFW to collect something, will then fly it down to Brazil before returning to AFW.
