A warm welcome to all friends of comets and minor planets!

We are living on a beautyful planet, surrounded in space from its large and small brothers and sisters since unimaginable times.
This web is an independant and ad-free approach to the grand show in our neighborhood in space with small amateur equipment.


Actual events:

Confirmation of a new comet published on the PCCP on July,22 2018, video of July, 25 2018

Actual object on the PCCP (Possible Comet Confirmation Page), first detected by T08 ATLAS-MLO, Mauna Loa, Hawaii on July,22 2018

TEST YOUR EYES!

The comet is moving from left to right between the arrows. One loop with arrows, 3 loops without arrows, endless. One loop = 1.25 seconds.
