Binocular comet Wirtanen - 29.12.2018 at 19.00 - 29.12.2018 at 19.25 Alavus Observation number 79956

Visibility II / V

Jukka Koivisto, Suomenselän Pegasus

After more than three weeks of full cloud, it was finally a relatively bright evening and not a moon as a nuisance. Wirtanen still somehow visible. With binoculars as a weak foggy, from whom no comet would have been recognized if he had not known.
