Comet LEONARD ...
This non-periodic comet was discovered by G. J. Leonard in January of 2021. It is now approaching the sun as it flies past earth (on December 12) and Venus (December 18) and will reach perihelion (closest approach to the sun) on January 3. In this image, the magnitude was around 8 (The dimmest stars that you can see without a telescope are 5 or less, and mostly 3 or less ... the lower the magnitude, the brighter the stars.) It could possibly brighten below magnitude 3 during this time becoming a naked-eye comet. The comet is moving at an incredible speed of about 42 km per second (26 mps or 94,000 mph) and is accelerating. Currently, the morning comet is in the vicinity of the constellation of Boötes near the bright star Arcturus.
I was able to get 24 frames of 2 minutes each due this morning resulting in a nearly one hour image. The comet is too dim to see without a small telescope or binoculars.
