In the Neighborhood

Tucson, AZ

*** Best view at original size ***

I went up to the deck to see if I could catch comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) and, after successfully
doing that I got the crescent Moon and then Jupiter with its 4 major moons. All objects are shown
to the same relative scale, taken with a lens / camera set-up at 1600mm focal length.

If one were able to travel at the speed of light, it would take a mere 1.3 seconds to reach the Moon,
9.5 minutes to reach comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4), and 43.75 minutes to reach Jupiter and its moons.
