Upcoming conjunction C/2021 A1 and M3

Perhaps a bit too much in advance for the forum, but some weekend plotting on SkySafari has indicated a potentially very exciting conjunction between this comet and one of the best globular clusters in our sky occurring around December 3. With the Sun 12 degrees below my horizon at 0630, I just have to hope the comet and the local weather behave themselves!

Thanks for the alert David.

Thanks for the alert David. Fingers crossed for clear skies and an active comet!
