Binocular comet Wirtanen - 29.12.2018 at 01.00 - 29.12.2018 at 01.15 Kauhava Observation number 79968

Visibility III / V

Jari Kankaanpää, Lakeuden Ursa

Wirtanen cools in Ilves' arms. The location of the subject in the high sky made it easier to shoot even though the sky was wintery gray.

In the radar pictures, Wirtanen has been revealed to be an apparently rude guy, even though when viewed from a distance, there is such a fog ball.
