C/2019 Y4 Atlas: One more binocular comet, 25th March, 2020

Post by j.gardavsky »

Hello all,

thank to the alert on the German astronomie.de, I have observed one more comet through the 15x85 binoculars.
The comet position has been at 23:15 local time in the Sigma 1 - 2 Rho UMa area, the brightness comparable to the M81 galaxy.

Don't mis it, this comet is brightening,
