Comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) - January 14, 2015
Comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy) – January 14, 2015

Hello Asodians!
After the clouds went away Comet C2014Q2 (Lovejoy) appeared glowing in the
sky! The nucleous was very bright, nearly stellar but the tail was not
visible. Not yet.
I observed from my balcony on the 7th floor…
Immediately – after placing my chair there – I went to work but had to wait
for an annoying Cirrus blanket that covered the view. It finally cleared
but before I even looked through the binos, I tried to spot it with my eyes
alone but I just couldn’t convince myself that it was visible. However, I
suspect that with excellent sky conditions the first naked eye observations
will be reported very, very soon!
I made this sketch with white pastel and blending stump on black
paper.

    balcony.

  2. Aloha Damien,

    Enjoyed your sketch and report of the comet. Very realistically sketched with tail just visible.
