Binocular comet Wirtanen - 5.12.2018 at 22.00 Tampere Observation number 79677

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

It was supposed to be clear in the evening, but it was in the southern sky that there were both clouds and smoke from a nearby thermal power plant.

I also used 10x60 binoculars to make a visual observation, but I dare not say that I made an observation about it.

Second, a single 2-minute exposure of the image in the green channel.
