Hey Space Placers!
Here is my pic of Comet Wirtanen from last night.
This is an 8-second exposure with a 50mm lens and Digital SLR. The comet WAS NOT visible to the unaided eye and was somewhat dim even in 7x50 binoculars.
The ever increasing moonlight along with the comet now receding from the Sun and Earth will make the comet harder to see. If there is an outburst to make Comet Wirtanen brighter I will let you know.

For my world-wide readers be sure to check out the "Christmas Comet" this weekend that will pass only 7 million miles from Earth.
If the skies ever clear again I'll try to get some more pics.
