Comet PanSTARRS and the young crescent Moon appeared together on the evening of March 12, 2013. This time lapse sequence was shot as the pair set over the Dos Cabezas Mountains. The photos where taken from San Simon, AZ using a Nikon D300 and Nikkor 18-200 VR zoom lens at 200mm. All exposures were 2 seconds at F/5.6 (ISO 800). The sequence was edited in Photoshop and assembled into a movie using QuickTime Pro.
