Telescopic comet Wirtanen - 11.1.2019 at 23.15 Helsinki Observation number 80272

Visibility II / V

Juha Parvio, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

After filming Orion, I quickly wanted to try to see if Comet Wirtanen could still be photographed. That's when it was conveniently next to the Big Bear's muscida star (o UMa) and had already risen close to the zenith. And the comet appeared in the pictures, although it is already clearly dimmed. I then filmed Wirtase for half an hour.
