DescriptionA very faint comet, C/2016 R2 (PANSTARRS), is visible (with telescope) near the Pleiades in the early evening sky, and moving away from us, toward the outer planets. Using the comet tracking service of the International Astronomy Union's Minor Planet Center (https://www.minorplanetcenter.net/iau/MPEph/MPEph.html) I was able to find and photograph it.
