Hey Artists!

I send you one of my observations of C/ 2004, Q2, Machholz
passing the well known open cluster Pleiades (M. 45).
The comet was a splended and interesting object to see in my 10 x 50 binos.
with over 90 deg. splitted dust and gastail and greenish coma. Info on sketch.
I used pen and pencil on white paper and inverted.
Location : Trondheim, Norway.

Thank you for all nice comments on my sketches!!

Best wishes and clear sky from Per-Jonny Bremseth.
