Binocular comet PanSTARRS - 28.6.2022 at 00.08 - 28.6.2022 at 01.30 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 107394

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

After a month's break, I finally got to photograph the brightest comet, which is just below the mag 9 limit.
According to estimates, towards the end of the year, the comet should brighten by another magnitude, but unfortunately it won't brighten enough to be visible to the naked eye.
