Details:
First sighting of Comet 46P/Wirtanen this evening. Just under naked eye visibility for my skies but a very large coma at just under 1° in diameter is visible in 7x50 binoculars! Reminds me of Comet Hyatukates massive coma but not nearly as bright. Heres a quick and dirty snap shot with a 6D and 35mm lens.
