For the first time, an object in our solar system has been found more than 100 times farther than Earth is from the sun. It's probably a dwarf planet that takes more than 1,000 years to orbit the sun. And it's called "Farout."

Good seeing conditions tonight! Poor night for comet viewing though... too much Moon.

Another finder chart for Comet 46P Wirtanen. The next 10 days will be a frustrating period to observe and image the comet. Competing against moonlight during the days around full moon. Well, I would be if the weather wasn't so terrible!
