The comet 60P/Tsuchinshan
From Ashburn , 60P/Tsuchinshan is visible between 20:36 and 04:14. It will become accessible at around 20:36, when it rises 21° above your south-eastern horizon, and then reach its highest point in the sky at 00:27, 46° above your southern horizon. It will become inaccessible at around 04:14 when it sinks to 21° above your south-western horizon.

Magnitudes estimates are derived from observations sent into the BAA Comet Section, as compiled by Jonathan Shanklin and last updated on 4 February 2019. We use these amateur observations in preference to the MPC's magnitude estimates, since they are updated much more often. Nonetheless, all comets are intrinsically unpredictable objects, and future magnitude estimates must always be taken with a pinch of salt.
