Comets

This page shows details of any comets that may be visible at the moment. I am selecting anything brighter than mag 14 that is likely to be visible from the Northern Hemisphere in the next two months.

Note that comet magnitudes are calculated from the MPC data, but comets are notoriously fickle and may brighten, show outbursts or just vanish!

The data are for a central UK location. To adjust for your location see advice here.

N/S: never sets
N/V: not realistically visible – either rises and sets during daylight, or below the horizon from my location.
