Telescopic comet Schwassmann-Wachmann - 3.10.2021 at 00.40 - 3.10.2021 at 01.05 Janakkala, Tervakoski Observation number 101695

Visibility III / V

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

On the first day of October, on Friday, I received an alert in the slack group about the comet 29P / Schwassmann-Wachmann brightening. The first opportunity to observe came surprisingly quickly despite the weather reports was clear. The comet appeared handsome right on the screen and a short exposure was enough.
