Details:
March is coming in like a Lion as far as weather goes, so much rain and clouds! Here is over an hour exposure set on this teal colored gem in Leo, with the comet suspended against a beautiful multi colored spray of stars near the sickle of Leo. The field is about 1 degree, and if you look carefully there seems to be the starts of a short tail forming to the lower left.
