Comet 46/P Wirtanen

23 November 2018

There's a comet coming! 46P/Wirtanen will be here in December (although it's already visible if you're clever). It'll sweep past Earth quite close, passing closest on the 16th of December, and at that time it'll be very photogenic in the late evening, coming right between the Pleiades and the star Aldebaran.

This photo is my shot of Halley from 1986.

I blogged about it at
