Comet SWAN

Comet SWAN (or C/2020 F8) was discovered in images taken by the Solar Wind Anisotropies (SWAN) camera on my birthday this year, March 25, 2020. In the glare of twilight, SWAN is difficult to find although it is still near the theoretical range of naked eye visibility.

As of perihelion, TODAY, the comet is very diffuse, does not have a visible nucleus and is not a comet that will be noticed by inexperienced observers. However, our film, MY NAME IS SWAN, will be visible until midnight tonight before continuing on its celestial journey.

Do please share this manifestation of light with your fellow earthlings.
