Third consecutive night that comet was visible.  2020 July 12/13 (Sunday night) it is still easy naked eye but tail seemed shorter tonight but also possibly broader.  Tail more like 3 deg in 10x50s.  Possibly also fainter overall but some haze in NNE so difficult to be sure.  Moon seemed much more of a problem tonight (Sunday night) than on Saturday night although Milky Way still naked eye through Cygnus.  Still a great sight and enjoyed showing it to a neighbour. Observed from 00:15 to 01:30UT.
