The hunt for 37P fragment B

Further to yesterday's entry about comet 73P, I managed to get out last night and try and spot fragment B. While I did manage to spot it in the end I had a lot of trouble finding it and even when I found it the view was very unimpressive — from my location there was no way it was a "naked eye object even in moonlight".

You can read more about the hunt and what I saw in last night's log.

File Under: Comet, Schwassmann-Wachmann 3.
