December the 6th in the morning I saw 3 comets, ofcourse I did 3 sketches.  Nothing very obvious, only 260P had something other than a fuzzle snowball to detect.

The 2 other ones were C/2018 N2 and C/2017 T2, that was too late to sketch Africano.

But my eyes received another gift from the sky, a small piece of the comet P1 came in the atmosphere as a shoting star, with a magnitude -2.5 so was not a fireball.

Between PEG and CAS, the direction and the period define the fact that that was more than probably an Orionid, and so a very small piece of the Halley comet.

 

Here the watercolor souvenir

Michel,

 

A kind of comet Halley "DNA" of sorts.

Nice sketching.

 

Frank :)
