Description

It seems that today there is no more tail on comet 46p/wirtanen, sure it will be intresting a follow up.
In the corner there is a negative zoomed version of the comet, and I think it could be visible a sort of remnant of the little tail, under the nucleus, what do you think?

Please, let me know your impressions.
