Comet Leonard C/2021 A1 from Balcarce, Argentina

on Friday, December 31, 2021
Beyond the photos, there are no words to describe the sense of connection from visual observation. Although peripheral vision is a technique that requires practice, observing these distant objects with our own eyes is unmatched, although colorful details are not perceived.
The comet was perceived with the 7x50 and 10x50 binoculars, clearly its tail (about 4ยบ using peripheral vision) and an approximate magnitude of 4.5 mag.
