Description

Comet C/2019 Y4 Atlas visited us in 2020. He was announced to become a comet visible with the naked eye. This didn't happen because he broke up a few weeks later after this capture.
I have choosen this imaging field in case of the IFN and the pair of galaxies M81 & M82.

Have fun with comet hunting.
