C/2020 F8 (SWAN)

Post by Christopher K. »

Is this another magnitude disappointment? It will hardly matter on the morning of Thursday May 21 when SWAN is very near Algol. This is due to Algol only reaching an altitude of eight degrees due northeast before twilight washes out any view of the comet--and that is only if its original predicted magnitude of 2.8 actually occurs.
