Comet 2015ER61 PanSTARRS imaged earlier this morning from my home observatory here in SE Essex. This is my first image of the comet which has now moved to become visible in the twilight low in the east from our northerly latitude. I was surprised to record over 18’ of tail which extends out the frame.
