The “Comet of Christmas” is approaching the Earth, which is even visible through the eyes. It has a green color, and in good weather it’s really a spectacle. The ground will be closest to December 16 and will make the 10th closest documented Earth passage in human history. Comet belongs to the classic attributes of Christian Christmas.
One of the most anticipated comet theaters this year is here. Comet 46P Wirtanen, which gets closest to the Earth on December 16th after 14:00, is already interested in amateur astronomers. Watching it is worth it now, because it is only visible through eyes.
The most anticipated comet theater of the year is practically at the door, and in good weather, we can really look forward to much in the last few days. Comet 46P Wirtanen, which will make the 10th closest documented comet fly across Earth in human history (will be “only” 30x further than our Moon, which is really a cosmic scale on Sunday 16th December), has already shifted beyond the limit of observability with only eyes . Indeed, if you go far enough from the overgrown cities and find yourself using a map, you will find a colorless foggy spot visible especially during the first half of the night between the weak stars of the constellation of the Eridanus. The photos shine with a striking azure-green color.
