SUNDIVING COMET ERASMUS:
Erasmus (C/2020 S3) will soon be inside the orbit of Mercury. Now
passing Venus in the early morning sky, the brightening comet is an
easy target for backyard telescopes.
It may be visible for only a few
more days before the sun's glare swallows it, so set your alarm for
dawn and enjoy the show.

To find the comet, locate Venus, and move to the right about 2 binocular widths.

I hate getting up in the morning and going out to the observatory and getting skunked.
the image below, I might not have captured the best possible image of
the comet, but it was my best possible comet on that particular
