Comet 46P - Wirtanen

Comet 46P/ Wirtanen – “Ghostly Green Comet”

I am sharing my take on the passage of this little comet 49P/Wirtanen, also known as the “Ghostly Green Comet”. On December 16, 2018, Wirtanen passed 11,620,000 km from Earth (it will be the closest to Earth in 70 years).

Also visible in the photo are the Pleiades (the seven sisters), or M45, in the constellation Taurus.
