As Comet Leonard shifted to the evening appearance it had a significant outburst and was brighter than expected. COBS data shows a 2 mag boost in brightness that faded quickly. This image is a stack of 31x6 sec captured at about 5 degrees above horizon stacked with Astropixel Processor and finished with Photoshop.
