Pretty bright comet with almost half a degree of tail.
Annoyingly low but (at a height of 18 degrees at the time of shooting).

Taivaanvahti haukkasi edellisen kommenttini loppuosan pois.  Siis:

Vielä yksi 10 mag, kirkkaampi komeetta tälle vuodelle!   Niitähän on riittänyt poikkeuksellisen paljon.

Korjasin komeetan designaation C/2020 S3:ksi (oli vahingossa jäänyt ATLAS-komeetan tunnus).
