I had to go for this image early tonight while C/2017 S3 was still low and the sky was stiill bright but clouds were predicted and have now moved in to cover the whole sky. Coma diameter and magnitude are about the same as yesterday but since the comet is much lower and the sky is much brighter I suspect that it is still brightening.
