Telescopic comet PANSTARRS - 1.4.2017 at 01.31 - 1.4.2017 at 01.50 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 62836

Visibility II / V


C / 2016 M1 Filmed at the Equipment Days. Found in summer 2016 with Pan-STARRS 1 telescope (Haleakala). No comet motion was observed during imaging. The comet is estimated to gradually brighten until the end of 2018. I think it has brightened up faster than now. www.aerith.net/comet/catalog/2016M1/2016M1.html
