Hi all,

I've been watching this comet for the last few nights. The coma is large and well defined along with a notable yellowish color. Last night using my SkyWatcher 120, I noticed that on one side of the come there is a definite flattening. I'm not sure what that means but I thought it was interesting just the same.

Anyone else been watching, what have you all seen?
