Description
Comparing to the images taken a few days ago now the Comet shows definite elongation of the coma. There's a breakup inside the central region clearly visible. Overall the comet seems to loose brightness but increasing in size. Certainly looks like an extended object to the naked eye even at my light-polluted location.
