Really bummed I'm not gonna get to see it. It's full cloudy all week. Tonight was the least cloudy it's been in a month, and I still can't see most of the stars.

I only just got my first telescope for Christmas, and was really hoping to see something especially cool.

The recently appeared comet, C/2022 E3 (ZTF) reaches its closest point to Earth on February 1 and has become an evening object in the northern sky. It is not quite visible to the naked eye, but can easily be spotted with binoculars and long-exposure photography.

Photographed on January 24, when the comet c/2022 e3 ZTF had sprouted a large “antitail.”

This is a composite image over separate sky and land exposures: sky - 5x90s exposures, land: 300s - exposure.

Camera/lens: Sony A7iii + Askar FMA180
