Comet 141P Machholz

Gregg Ruppel

Hi all:

Comet 141P Machholz brightened in December and is now around magnitude 10-11:

Some observers have spotted two fragments trailing the main body, but unfortunately I didn't compose appropriately to capture these faint companions.

LRGB, 40 minutes total exposure from Dark Sky New Mexico.

Clear skies,
