Comet Catalina on December 6, 2015

Alan Dyer captured this image of Comet Catalina this morning from Arizona. His verdict on the comet is: “Meh.” It’s still a binocular comet, if that. Let’s hope it brightens over the next week or two. Will there EVER be another great comet for northern-hemisphere observers? It’s been nearly 19 years since Hale-Bopp and Hyakutake graced the northern skies!
