Description:

Comet C/2013 US10 (Catalina) imaged on December 21th 2015, latest image of this comet on this year without moonlight. A mosaic of nearly 5 degrees width and 3 degrees height in which are highlighted some details of the long and bluish ionic tail as rays in the initial part, knots along its axis, and a important disconnection at the end. The brighter trail that leaves the yellowish and short dust tail departs toward southeast, unfolding it with fan shape more faint in a wide angle until the ionic tail. At left of the greenish coma there are an interesting group of galaxies being NGC 5566 the biggest.
