In late April and May, we had an unexpected visitor! This very bright comet, discovered on March 25th, was bright enough to be seen with the naked eye. It is expected to reach peak brightness in late May.

These images, taken by one of our members, Mirko Harnisch, and clearly show its movement, and its long tail.
