Details:
Here is a surprising object, which Im sure youll like. This comet, now within a month of nearing its maximum brightness is only 15th magnitude by the latest visual estimates. Yet what a gorgeous comet it is! A stunning fan ray tail, long and yellowish from dust. Never expected this object to be so beautiful for such a dim solar system denzien.
