Comet C/2007 W1 Boattini


Serious comet chasers have been watching Comet C/2007 W1 (Boattini) for some time. For awhile, it exceeded its predicted brightness but is back to cruising at normal. During the last weeks, Boattini was a southern hemisphere object… But not for long. Now its about to round the Sun and head north!

In the next couple of weeks, Boattini will slowly become visible in Belgium as a bright object in the morning sky, visible with the naked eye. Here's a finder chart.
