Comet 29P bright outburst

About this image

This comet is currently in a bright outburst. My photometry last night showed it rising from around 11.50 to 11.30 in around 6 hours. Observations are really important over the next few days but the Moon is near and will be a bit of a problem. For more details see the Comet Section's 29P page which is maintained by Richard Miles.
