Satan's comet passed over us here

The most exciting astronomical event of this spring was certainly the appearance of Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks, also known as Devil's Comet. writes tíkkep.hu.

Although the comet ultimately did not become so bright that it could be easily seen with the naked eye, stunning images of it were captured with the help of this technique.

On the evening of April 7, Gabor Balázs captured a stunning image of Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks.

The registry creator also provided an empirical report on the circumstances of the image's birth.

“I had long been waiting for a clear, dust-free, moonless night to observe once again the now brighter Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks. That night came on April 7. The location could not have been better, because I was able to capture this celestial wanderer at the Piszkéstető Observatory The viewing itself was also fascinating, as I was able to observe it visually using a 25cm telescope with other astronomers. The atmosphere of observation was further enhanced by the hoot of an owl coming from the distance and the comet itself was an impressive sight in the telescope, as well as its nucleus Its coma, the plume was also visible and based on its brightness of about 4 magnitude, it could actually be a free comet, but we didn't see it in the dark Piskistitua sky either. Photographically, of course, the plume appeared much larger than what was seen with binoculars, but I was surprised that it was So large that it was outside the camera's field of view Overall, it was a great experience observing Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks, especially seeing it in Piszkéstető and with the Local Group. The comet will approach the Sun on April 21, but tonight may be one of the opportunities “The last time he can be spotted by us.”
