Description

Had an extra hour this morning, so swung my scope over to Comet Leonard rising in the morning sky in Ursa Major. It was discovered on January 3, 2021 by Greg Leonard at Mt. Lemmon Observatory.  This was a quick process stacking separately on the stars and the comet.  The comet is centered at 10:19 UT.
