Description

Comet Y4/2019 Atlas was thought to have the potential to be visible to the naked eye in 2020. Unfortunatly, it broke apart just the day before this picture was taken and diminished rapidly in brightness. As ephemeral as comets are compared to the (in our lifespans) unchanging more distant objects, I find them fascinating and challenging to catch on a sensor.
