P/2016 BA14's closest approach was yesterday, and it had been predicted to get so close to Earth and to earn a spot in the top five closest approaches by a comet ever recorded! This comet is soon to be zipping through Canes Venatici; it remains faint, probably magnitude 12.5 to 13.0. BA14 is only about 115 meters wide. However, it has grown a very short tail!
