  1. Comet C/2019 U6 Lemmon imaged on June 8, 2020 with a brightness at magnitude 6.5 and an ionic tail of at least 2 degrees long (the angular size covered by four moons). The image has a 4x4 degree field with the comet located on the background of tens of thousands stars of the Milky Way in the constellation Puppis (Argo Navis). Data and better quality image: https://cometografia.es/2019u6-lemmon-20200608/
  2. My last image of comet C/2019 Y4 ATLAS during its disintegration, taken on April 25, 2020. Its elongated and non-condensing coma only has showing then one of the fragments into which it had divided during the previous days. Data and better quality image: https://cometografia.es/2019y4-atlas-20200425/
  3. Comet C/2020 F8 (SWAN) imaged on May 18, 2020 at dawn, just 6 degrees above horizon. Despite be magnitude 6, it was not observable through binoculars due to twilight and the dense atmosphere at this low height viewing, but the photograph managed to register it with its characteristic green color in the constellation of the Triangle. Data and better quality image: https://cometografia.es/2020f8-swan-20200518/
  4. Comet C/2017 T2 PANSTARRS imaged on 2020 April 11, with a 6' angular size coma and a faint curved dust tail toward South (down). Shows certain ionic activity toward anti-solar direction, to Northeast (top-left). Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2017t2-panstarrs-20200411/
  5. Image of new comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) on 2020 May 14, at magnitude 9.5 and with a 4' green coma seems that is beginning to emit a short ionic tail (toward down-right). In fast increasing of brightness could be observable at the naked eye in July. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2020f3-neowise-20200514/
  6. Image of comet C/2019 U6 (Lemmon) taken on May 12, 2020. In one month its brightness has risen from magnitude 10.5 to 8, its coma has increased angular size from 3' to 7', and begun to emit a faint ionic tail that, with more than half a degree of length, leaves image field towards southeast.

  7. My first image of comet C/2019 U6 (Lemmon) taken on 2020 April 14 when its brightness was in magnitude 10.5. In this image its green coma measures near 3' of angular size with a sharp central condensation and without tail yet. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2019u6-lemmon-20200414/
  8. Thanks to all Comet C/2020 F8 (SWAN) with its tail at least four degrees length which get out of this wide field image, taken on 2020 April 27 during morning twilight in australian skies. Comet had shining then with magnitude 6.5 and was observable through binoculars. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2020f8-swan-20200427/
  9. Comet C/2020 F8 SWAN on 2020 April 21, shows a turquoise coma with a size of 11 arcminutes and a bright false nucleus, from which comes out an ionic tail toward southwest. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2020f8-swan-20200421b/
  10. New comet C/2020 F8 SWAN has developed a ionic tail which in this wide field image obtained on 2020 April 21 can be seen with 2 degrees length. The comet with 7,5 magnitude is observable from Southern Hemisphere and ecuatorial latitudes. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2020f8-swan-20200421/
  11. Comet C/2019 Y4 ATLAS in the process of disintegration imaged on 2020 April 11. Through a process of sharpening the inner coma, which has been stretched those days, can be seen several fragments. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2019y4-atlas-20200411/
  12. Comet C/2017 T2 PANSTARRS imaged on 2020 February 16 on a Milky Way dense star field between constellations Cassiopeia and Perseus, the comet had then a brightness at magnitude 9 showing a faint external green coma very gassy with some 5 arcminutes angular size, together with a wide and short dust tail toward southeast. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2017t2-panstarrs-20200216/
  13. Comet C/2019 Y4 ATLAS imaged on 2020 March 26 with a brightness in magnitude 8, surrounded by a green coma with 12 arcminutes of angular size and throwing a faint ionic tail everytime more long. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2019y4-atlas-20200326/
  14. Comet C/2019 Y1 ATLAS imaged on 2020 February 26 during nautical dusk at 15 degrees altitude from horizon, in fact an obstacle of my yard got in down-right of image. Comet with a brightness in magnitude 9.5 shows a greenish coma with 3 arcminutes angular size and without tail. Data and link to image: https://cometografia.es/2019y1-atlas-20200226/
  15. Comet C/2019 Y1 (ATLAS) imaged on 2020 February 16, three weeks after my first image of this comet taken on January 27. In this lapse of time has increased its brightness from magnitude 11.5 to 10 and coma angular size from 2 to 2.5 arcminutes, shinning with a turquoise color.
