After a few days of overcast sky I was able to observe for the second time the comet C / 2020 F3 NEOWISE, currently visible just before dawn. I estimated the nucleus at a magnitude of about +2.5 and the crown was visible for about 20 minutes. My Instagram www.instagram.com/gianlucabelgrado.jpeg/ Facebook www.facebook.com/gianluca.belgrado
