Comet C/2016 M1 (PANSTARRS) continue increasing brightness and size, such as can be observed in this image on May 13th 2018. Its evolution is clear if we compare with my previous image taken three weeks ago, its greenish coma grew from 6 to 8 arcminutes of apparent diameter while its brightness has increased from magnitude 10.5 to 9.5.
