Comets Crawl through the Skies at Dawn and Dusk
After the summertime spectacle of Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) the sky quickly emptied of easy-to-see comets for Northern Hemisphere observers. But in recent weeks a whole new crew has assembled to enliven the nights. There are currently four comets within range of amateur telescopes — periodic comet 156P/Russell-LINEAR in the evening sky and Comets ATLAS (C/2020 M3), Erasmus (C/2020 S3), and NEOWISE (C/2020 P1) visible in the early morning hours.
