C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS)

Sketched as seen on Apr.15/20 between 2240-2250hrs PDT using my f/3.3 508mm Dobsonian reflector at magnifications of 320X and 480X. The comet is reportedly breaking up. The central coma is noticeably elongating from when ast observed about a month previous. There are faint striating to the broad extending tail. There was a very small condensed dot seen intermittently in the head of coma. West is at 11 o’clock and North is at 8 o’clock
