Description

In spite of its slow approaching to Sun (perihelion will be on March) and keeping the distance to Earth, the comet 290P/Jager has sloped down its brightness since last image I took at the begining of January from 12 magnitude until 13.5 in this image on 1st February. Its morphologic aspect no changed, showing a greenish coma of merely 1' diameter with a shaped central condensation.
