Comet SWAN, i.e., C/2020 F8 (SWAN), has become naked-eye visible in the Southern Hemisphere. It is approaching us from below the equator. Hence, why it is currently only visible in the South.

This will change as of May 11, 2020. It will cross the ‘equator’ — so to speak. The ‘Ecliptic‘ if you want to get technical. It will still take a few days after that to get above the horizon and trees.

I will keep you posted.

Keep your fingers crossed that this one, unlike C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS), will NOT fragment and fizzle away.
