Yesterday i used Skysafari normally, with no problems at all, with all my usual settings.

Now i open it again and suddenly some Sun stripes appear. I didn't change any previous settings: the same as yesterday, where Skysafari worked without problems.

I tried chanching almost every settings with no success..

 

Please help me....

They’re tails of Comets near Sun. Turn off Comets & select an object & they will be gone.

They will change & fade as time passes too.

I just noticed the same thing the other night. I guess these are new comets that were not there earlier? Strange I have never noticed this before. Surely there must have been other comets like this in the past?
