Binocular comet Jacques - 3.9.2014 at 23.40 Kangasala, Sahalahti Observation number 29798

Visibility III / V


Jaska has already reached Swan. Handsome shone green. The brightness seems to have remained almost unchanged at around 6.5. Not stand out with the naked eye, but easily with binoculars and a small telescope.
In a black and white negative image, the tail also looks a little different.
