Go Observe – 46P/ Wirtanen Good Luck — 2 Comments

  1. I took your advice and went looking for the comet last night; and I was surprised at how easy it was to find, even from our light-polluted site in Albano! And, not surprisingly, your image and description were a perfect match to what I saw. Also, the University of Maryland link that you provided was most helpful. Thanks!

    • I was hoping that December 16th would be clear and I got lucky with a partly clear evening. Did a 10X50 binocular sketch with M45 included in the field of view. A beautiful site in between fast cloud in very cold conditions. So have not seen it since because of the moon heading to full, hopefully in a week or so I can view it again.
