Comet C/2021 T4 (Lemmon) imaged on June 30, 2023, just when passed between Kappa1 Sculptoris, really a binari system of two white giants both with magnitude of 6 and separeted by near only 1 arcsecond, and Kappa2 Sculptoris, a solitary orange giant star at magnitude 5. The comet contrasts the group with its greenish coma at magnitude 10 and two faint tails: an ionic tail toward west (right) and a dust tail toward northeast (top left).
