Comet treat for local stargazers

Stargazers in the Sultanate are in for a treat as Comet C/2021 A1 Leonard, the brightest comet of the year, is making an appearance this month.

In the wee hour of yesterday, the Astronomical Society of Brunei Darussalam (PABD) captured an image of Comet C/2021 A1 Leonard, sporting a green coma with an extended dust tail.

The comet, pictured from Tutong District, is currently at magnitude 7.
