C/2022 E3 (ZTF) is an incredible object. It is described as a 'long period comet' originating from the Oort cloud, an icy debris field surrounding us in the far outer solar system.
It's up there right now, about to make its closest approach to Earth, faintly visible to the naked eye and clearly identifiable with good binoculars, a halfway decent telescope or a quality camera. Don't miss it! It won't be back in ... 50000 years.
The object was discovered very recently in March 2022. It has a bright green glow around its nucleus which is due to the effect of sunlight on its molecules - mainly unstable carbon and cyanogen.
Below, you'll find other shots of the sky from over the recent winter weeks.
