The comet C/2013 R1 Lovejoy on January 6, 2014. With a brightness around 6th magnitude exhibits a beautiful appearance as yet, showing a fluorescent and powerful coma, and the dust and gas tails nearly together due to our perspective. The gas tail is visible leaving the comet's head more narrow and bluish, shows a knot at 15' distance, and extends it at least until 1º long.
