Telescopic comet Schwassmann-Wachmann - 8.11.2021 at 21.51 - 8.11.2021 at 21.59 Hankasalmi, Murtoinen Observation number 102090

Visibility III / V

Harri Kiiskinen, Jyväskylän Sirius

Comet 29P has had several outbursts in recent weeks, but no observations have been made of Finland. Finally a bright evening came and I was able to spot the comet. Compared to my previous observation on October 3, 2021, the comet has brightened slightly and the coma has clearly expanded. We hope that there will continue to be plenty of observation.
