After a few days of rain and clouds in the horizon, I can finally photograph the comet PanSTARRS in the portuguese sky. Actually, I was arrived from a weekend photo trip and was exausted, but the sky was totally clear, so, I found some “extra forces” to delay my sleep, and I´ve tried to find this view from my home window.
