Telescopic comet Catalina - 14.10.2015 at 23.54 Lumijoki Observation number 44288

Visibility II / V

Veijo Kallio, Oulun Arktos

The weather conditions were not very good, but the comet still stands out with a short tail pointing down to the right. (Note, this is not the bright C / 2013 US10 (Catalina) that will appear in the Finnish sky at the end of the year).
