Location: St Raphael (France),
|Searching for the comet at an almost dark place, it seems to me that some stars were slowly moving. but it couldn't be my eyes only as my girlfriend notice the same .It was three points making an arrow form .
I jump on my binoculars (11x 70 )and I could without any doubt watch at those stars moving on the sky .As the stars-point formed an isosceles triangle ,I would say I couldn't watch the base of this triangle and the summit at the same time in the lens. As i was to give the lens to my girl I wonder what was exactly among this lights but this base I began to concentrate on fade too rapidly and I stay there with my friend and our eyes .
The sky was now totally stable.
We notice the triangle points at 50 deg high in the south and it disappears at around 30 deg.
Size and luminosity of the three points were as usual average stars
