Comet 46P/Wirtanen

Comet 46P/Wirtanen

It was a clear night and the glare of the Moon was sufficiently subdued and located in the east. Earlier viewed high near the zenith the comet was a soft green glow just above Auriga. By the time I was able to get a number of tracked exposures in it had moved further west.
