It was discovered in the tea plantation a few days ago, and now you can also enjoy it in the sky
And we have to wait a few more days and we will see a new miracle in the sky that we did not know about until now. the csillagaszat.hu The site reported an exciting discovery. The comet, which can be seen easily with the naked eye, was seen by a 72-year-old Japanese astronomer and comet explorer. Hideo Nishimura was at his tea plantation in Gumio near the city of Kakegawa on August 12 when he discovered the new comet using his telescope, and took pictures of it.
Since the brightness is considered high for today’s smaller telescopes, many amateur astronomers noticed and confirmed the discovery after the Japan National Observatory’s announcement. Nishimura himself later found the culprit, in recordings taken the night before the discovery. Soon, numerous observations made it possible to determine the orbit of the celestial body, which confirmed that it was a previously unknown comet. The comet has been given the official name C/2023 P1 (Nishimura).
The comet will be close to daylight on September 18th, when we will see it very bright. According to astronomers, it is worth spying on the sky around September 10, because it is much easier to notice it at this time, even with the naked eye.
