Description

Comet C/2014 S2 (PANSTARRS) imaged on June 3 2016 when its brightness has dropped until near magnitude 12. Likewise its look has waned since the last image I took two months ago: coma has been reduced to only 2 arcminutes, and the dust tails have merged in a small fan that opens from East to North.
