Telescopic comet Tsuchinshan-ATLAS - 30.3.2023 at 05.14 - 30.3.2023 at 06.02 Fregenal de la Sierra, Espanja Observation number 113932

Visibility I / V

I also managed to photograph this still very faint and distant (7 AU) comet.
But I wanted to get this in my hat because the comet is predicted to brighten up enough to be visible to the naked eye in October of next year.
We live in hope.
