Telescopic comet PANSTARRS - 11.5.2022 at 04.21 - 11.5.2022 at 06.09 Fregenal de la Sierra Observation number 106724

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I photographed this brightening comet with a Spanish telescope.
At its brightest, this should be at the turn of next year.
The brightness should then be about mag 8 grades.
Unfortunately, this (even) comet is then in the southern sky.
