Comet C/2021 A1 (Leonard)

21 January 2022, Kos Coronaios

I haven’t had much luck with documenting all the outbursts and tail disconnection events with comet A1 Leonard since it was visible from our part of the world. Cloudy skies was the main culprit, but I was fortunate enough though in imaging the separation of the dust and ion tail of the comet over a 24 hour period on the evening of the 19th & 20th January 2022 in the image below. The following image taken last night (20/01/2022) is annotated.
