Binocular comet ZTF - 27.1.2023 at 20.30 Järvenpää Observation number 111679

Visibility III / V

Toni Veikkolainen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

On the outskirts of Järvenpää, there was so much man-made light in the sky that you couldn't get a very brilliant shot of the brightest comet in the sky with camera optics. Mostly the coma came up.
