- Ray’s Astrophotography
Last night I took a picture of Comet Atlas. It is supposed to visible without telescope in the month of May, 2020. As it is approaching closer to Sun it seems it is disintegrating. This Comet Atlas is expected to be a fragment of a much bigger comet. ATLAS is named after the “Last Alert System”. Asteriod Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System – ATLAS. These comets and asteroids brought water to the Earth..also wiped out Dinosaurs. Most of the green stuff around the comet is called “Coma”. Coma is mainly gases and water. When Comets approach sun they lose lot of material which creates the “Tail”.
Observation of C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) April 9 to 10.
