C/2017 T2 (PANSTARRS) @ 2020 September 14, 09:08 UT

My last image of comet C/2017 T2 (PANSTARRS) taken on September 14, 2020, at magnitude 12 and soon no observable due to short elongation. For more than one year has been visually observable, was not characterized for a great brightness reaching magnitude 8.5 past May, but it has always been there with its powerful dust tail while other comets came and went faster and here on Earth many things happened.
