So, this is where it was at 11pm tonight, i.e., Friday, May 29, 2020.

It brightness, in ‘absolute magnitude’, is DOWN to +6. That is NOT good. That is borderline naked-eye visible.

So, I am NOT expecting C/2020 F8 (SWAN), alas, to be a BIG hit. I, after the collapse of ‘ATLAS‘, was ultra-cautious. I did not want to build-up, false expectations.

But, I will keep you posted.
