Comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS)

Currently the comet is in Ursa Major, moving towards Camelopardalis the Giraffe. Hopefully it will continue to brighten through May.

If comet ATLAS continues to brighten at this rate all the way to its closest approach to the sun at the end of May, it would end up rivaling Venus and be a naked-eye object.

Let's all hope this happens and helps take our mind away from the current health crisis - stay safe!
