Comet Leonard and M3 close approach tonight.

I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet, but Comet Leonard is going to glide past  the globular cluster M3 tonight. Closest approach will be 3-4UT when it will be only 10' away.

Hehe, Ì've been aware of that meeting at 5:00am today, but besides having to go to work it has been strongly overclouded.

kind regards,
