You know the comet C/2018 V1 (Machholz-Fujikawa-Iwamoto), some days after the same Mr. Iwamoto has discovered this other new comet.

The comet C/2018 Y1 will reach perihelion in early February and some days after the comet will pass within 0.3 AU of the earth.  Prediction (???) +7.3.

 

Here my first sketch

Don't hesitate to post your sketch here!

It was so difficult to retreive all information about a comet, same just here in the sketching forum... Try to retrieve 46P...

So why not to post in a single post all information related to any sketches of this comet?

 

Clear sky to you all

Michel

Good work, Michel.  I will be happy to contribute sketches to this thread if I get the chance.  We're under a winter storm warning for the weekend but that will give the comet a chance to get closer and brighter.   lol.gif

Thank you Christian

 

Here the today's job

The comet is a little bit more brillant +9? still with DC 3 but the coma diameter is much more important, and not symetric.

This looks like a very active comet!

Thank you.

As often with non periodic comet, this one looks interesting to follow.

Thank you Paul, you'r welcome.

 

Here's the sketch of this morning when Venus and Jupiter are dancing together.

 

C2018Y1_20190118_l.jpg

 

I feel that the magnitude +10 (?) is slightly less brillant than Jan 14th, but DC more contrasted 4 (?)

Clear sky to you all

 

Michel
