Comet 12P/Pons-Brooks on the evening of 2024 April 28 UT. The comet only has a few more evenings before twilight and the horizon will make it no longer observable from Tucson. The software did not have enough bright stars to calculate a magnitude for the comet in the bright twilight sky at an altitude under 2 degrees. The brightest star in the images was magnitude 7.5.
