Reluctantly, I've had say farewell to this fascinating comet because it's just too low by the time astronomical twilight is over to get a good view. I have immensely enjoyed watching its progress and tuning in each night since December 2021, so I've complied some of my sketches into a compilation in tribute. Get a better look by clicking on the image....
