Description

This a wide field of the comet 21P/Giacobini–Zinner.
The picture shows the position of the comet at 0h48 of the 18th of August 2018.
Additional to the original lights from this day, I have added lights from a very dark location of this area (without the comet) to have a deeper result for the background.
