Visibility III / V
The comet C / 2019 Y4 (ATLAS) was filmed on the second night of the April work. The comet was discovered by ATLAS's asteroid search program The Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System & #40;T08& #41; December 20, 2019. The asteroid was discovered by Mauna Loan (ATLAS-MLO) and identified as a comet by Larry Denneau, a senior software engineer at the University of Hawaii. The comet has an orbital period of about 4400 years. When photographing the comet was 0.956au away, the closest it will be 0.781au on May 24, 2020. 1Picture. stacked Average by comet. The comet has dimmed dramatically, with the core broken down into several parts.
