Binocular comet Wirtanen - 26.12.2018 at 18.35 Vihti Observation number 79973

Visibility III / V

On Assassination Day, the starry sky was visible for a moment, allowing Wirtas to be recorded in the home region.

The adjoining street lamp and the rapidly turning on cloud front quickly limited observation to a 35-millimeter image, so there is no sure perception to be felt. Therefore, the title of the observation is a binocular comet.
