Comet-like object spotted from Boracay Island – Philippines

These pictures of the object, sent by David, really belong in the comments that follow the star maps for this month. I discovered that I cannot post pictures in the comment field, so they are here.

@David, thanks for the pictures. I was not at my desk for a day so I’ve been slow to post. The pictures here are thumbnails – click for the full images. I took the liberty of cropping the best to show the object, and the second is the same material enhanced in Photoshop to show as much detail as possible.

The pictures certainly match the eyewitness accounts. I am hoping that the local observers who have posted here can do a bit of geometry to figure out where, exactly or approximately, the observed object was relative to their positions.
