Binocular comet Iwamoto - 17.2.2019 at 23.40 Järvenpää Observation number 81309

Visibility II / V

Toni Veikkolainen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

Iwamoto was eventually found easily as I twisted and flipped the stacked image. The gradient caused by the moonlight was quite shockingly strong. The direction of the tail may be conceived by a good imagination.
