A brand new comet, discovered in March 2020 — hence the ‘2020 F’ (6th half-month of 2020).

SWAN denotes that it was found by the Solar Wind ANisotropies (SWAN) instrument of the SOHO spacecraft studying the Sun.

Its perihelion date is May 27, 2020.

It could become naked-eye visible in a few weeks. I will keep YOU posted. Promise.

Comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) Unlikely To NOW Be Naked-Eye — It Is Breaking Up.

SHAME.

But, I did say, very clearly — DO NOT GET YOUR HOPES UP.

I was hoping. I would have liked to have seen another naked-eye comet. The last was 23-years ago! That is too long.

There is a WHOLE generation, in the Northern Hemisphere, that have never seen a naked-eye comet. (Yes, there have been a FEW in the Southern Hemisphere.)

That it started breaking up this far from the Sun is incongruous. But, it is travelling at breakneck speeds, getting faster by the second.

Well, that was THAT. SMILE.

Wait for another.

Waited 7-years for this.

The Fall Foliage 2015 in New Hampshire as I shared with you in numerous picture-studded posts was quite amazingly spectacular. Colors Gone Wild! It was a memorable year for vivid reds. Most agreed that it was one of the best years for foliage in a long time.

Well, though foliage is said to have peaked we, in the Lakes, are still drowning, daily, with delight, in color. Mainly yellows, oranges and amber. I can’t remember ever seeing this much YELLOW. Wow. Some of the country roads that I drive through are BUT tunnels of yellow. I took all the pictures below, on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, within a few hundred yards of the house — many from our yard. This is our view. It is amazing. I wanted to share it with YOU.
