Dies war der richtige Job zum "Schmotzige Dunschtig" , der heisse Tag und Beginn des alemannischen Faschings.

Ort: Salem B 575m ü.d.M.

Der Komet war unter den gestrigen Bedingungen freisichtig (wenn man wusste wo er steht); Eindruck: am Rohr recht hell; zwischen m 6 - 7
Cyan im Überfluss
Der Schweif kann bei entsprechender Bildmanipulation (davon halte ich nicht viel ) noch besser sichtbar werden.

ES WAR KALT :-(
