In 1995 comet 73P shattered into 4 big fragments. In 2006 these big fragments had shed dozen of smaller fragments and hundreds of smaller chunks. This year 73P fragment C has shed a brighter fragment called 73P-BT. Unfortunately 73P is low on the morning horizon this return for the Northern Hemisphere.
