As the clouds eventually cleared caught 46P Wirtanen just as it was about to disappear behind the roof tops.

Very cool - ive been trying too but unfortunately it’s sitting right over an industrial estate and a brand new 400 acre floodlit  car storage yard so there’s absolutely no chance for me! Might point the camera in that area next clear night.

Nice image, but something of a close call with the roof and the cloud

Well done Dave.

Forecast here is looking hopeful for Monday / Tuesday and it should be into + dec by then, if you haven't left for foreign parts by then :)

I'm really hoping to get a look at £0.46 during this Moon gap. The weather forecast isn't the best. Some cold clear nights due just as the Moon reclaims the darkness!

Seems a long time since I tracked down a comet. Catalina (?) rings a bell, a couple of winters ago.

I *think* I clocked it a few minutes ago with my 14x40 Nikon binos.
Tomorrow around this time it passes very close to η Eridani (Eta) so it will be easier to find.
