The comet P/2016 J1-A (PANSTARRS)
From Ashburn (click to change), P/2016 J1-A (PANSTARRS) is not observable. In-The-Sky.org does not have any current information about its brightness, and this probably means it is very faint.

The MPC's magnitude estimates are updated rather rarely, and so we prefer to estimate the brightness of comets on the basis of amateur observations. No amateur observations of are available, however, and consequently the magnitude estimates shown here may be unreliable.
