A few months ago we heard astrophotographers who captured images of comet 46P / Wirtanen. It is the brightest comet of 2018, in theory visible to the eye, but large and diffuse, not easily visible. Click here for an instruction article providing some graphics and suggesting some ways to see the comet! And enjoy the images on this EarthSky community page. Thanks to all who contributed! If you have not yet uploaded your photo, please submit it here.
EarthSky's lunar calendars are cool! They make great gifts. Ask for it now. Going fast!
46P now bright enough to be visible in an allsky photo. This using the very impressive Olympus 8mm f1.8 fisheye lens, from my very light and polluted location. pic.twitter.com/mDgXfgaH1c
