Leonard was perfectly visible in the morning despite the moonlight. Hopefully there will be more clear weather by December. This can become a spectacular target if the predictions hold true.

näkyykö Orimattila\Lahti suunnalla ilman kiikareita

No viimeisimmät arviot komeetasta on mag 7.5 luokkaa, joten eiköhän peruskiikareilla (7x50) voisi alkaa näkymäänkin.  Tosin ehkä vain sumuiselta pallolta, ei juurikaan pyrstöä.
