  • Comet 46P Wirtanen seen from East-Java, Indonesia

    Went to the mountains of East-Java 14-17th December with the goal to observe the passing Comet 46P Wirtanen. Weather conditions were poor during first 3 days, but I managed to observe and get a few photos of it on the 17th December. Altough the comet wasnt very easy to observe with the naked eyes, Im happy with the photo result..
